My heart goes out to all the family, my prayers are with you all. Amos was a wonderful man, and loved life and people. He will truly be missed. When you get sad, just think how happy he is right now, he is with your Mom and his other friends who have passed on, but most of all he is with our Jesus.

I worked at Walmart Pharmacy for many years and always enjoyed talking to him so much. All of my family is from Elliot county so he knew some of my family , always so nice and kind and always had good things to say about every one. I know he will be missed.
