Went to school with Kermit and Rosa Lee, at Pikeville. Also, went to Sunday School with them when we were teenagers, at a little Church of God. It sat next to Pauley Lumber. I always liked Kermit as a friend. I will miss him and Rosa Lee.

Sooo sorry to hear, Kermit was my neighbor for 10 years. He was a great person always working to take care of his 3 children he raised on his own. Not many men would do this. Prayers for his family’.
