    We can never repay what Preston and millions like him did for our country
    We owe our way of life today to our servicemen in WW2

    I first met Preston and Eunice @ the Little OL Oprey
    and enjoyed both of them

    My deepest sympathy goes out to Dennis, David, and Robert, Francis and family. Sam and I thought so much of Pappy. He was a skilled craftsman and perfectionist. Sam was so fortunate to have him to be his right hand man. Not only was he talented that way, he was also so very friendly and humorous. Always a pleasure to be around. He did have a long wonderful life and I can just see him and Sam catching up on old times together while Sam shows him around in his new home, heaven, as he reunites with Eunice. Lots of good times to remember. Nancy Rogers

    My thoughts and prayers are with the Ferguson family, whom I’ve known since the early 1970′s. You should all be proud of the legacy that Preston has left your family.
