When thinking of Uncle Amos, I'll always remember the smell of pipe tobacco, and the feeling that he honestly, genuinely cared when he asked somehow how they were doing or what they had been up to.

Im very sad to hear about Amos. He was my favorite flower delivery guy when I worked for Life Story Funeral Homes. I have missed our chats since life took our paths in different directions. Sending my condolences to the whole family. Christine Broberg
