Pops was one of the most memorable people you could ever meet. I always enjoyed my time with him and his family, which was always full of laughter and funny stories. I will forever remember my "Wilford Wednesdays" at Uncle Bubba's which was very precious time to me. Pops did a lot of great things for a lot of people, and he was loved by all that knew him. I will forever be grateful to have had him in my life. We are all truly blessed to have know this man. Praying for peace for all family and friends.
