  • 1978, I met Winston, we both worked at R. E. Barker Produce Co Before long, he became one of our closest friends. He had just married his wife and had only began his life. I married that same year. Each passing year, times changed, our children were born, we bought homes, we always managed to spent time each week visiting, helping , talking, playing darts, eating lots of wonderful foods, laughing, watched our favorite movie "Used Cars" more times than should be legal, that is when Winston became...Toby. Times were hard and we all had hard times, times we wish never happened, divorces, watching our dreams dissolve, knowing it was too late, to fix our mistakes. But I know one thing about Winston my friend Toby, and that is he was a good man. He loved his family and would give you the shirt from his back if you needed it. I regret the most, the fact that I can only pray and hope he knew how much I care for him, thought of him and wanted only for him to be able to get his lif! e back. To overcome the hardships he passed by and I hope he was given a second chance by any of us that loved him and really knew the "real Winston". He was deserving of that. I regert I never got to tell him what a special person he had been, not just to myself but to all my family members. I will miss him greatly. Today my heart broke when my daughter told me, Mom, Winston died today. What sad words to hear about someone I never took the time to look-up and just tell him, thank you Winston, I will treasure our friendship forever and my friend, miss you from this day forth. To Winston's family, the ones I did know and the ones I never got to meet, my prayers and request for your broken hearts, to be care for and healed by the only one who can give the greatest comfort of all..our Lord Jesus Christ, God-speed his comfort to each one of you. Good bye Winston, we will see each other again. Connie Rhodes Smith and daughters Veronica and Ashley and my Father James Ball and his wife Grace, we will miss you dearly!

  • Winston, Thank you for your kind words over the meat counter. It was always a pleasure to see you, and I looked forward to coming to Terry's because of you. You were a special person, and my life is richer for having known life will be poorer without you on the planet. I wish you peace.
