Ruby, Mitzi and family, I was sorry to hear about Worm. I have fond memories of Worm delivering office supplies to us at Carriage Carpets. He always had that wonderful smile. Ruby, Douglas thought so much of you and working with you if I remember correctly. Please know you all will be in my thoughts and prayers during the days ahead.

Ruby and Mitzi, Daddy and I are so very sorry to hear of Worm's passing. Our prayers are with both of you. Daddy worked with Worm for a long time at the office supply and I grew up seeing Worm at the store a lot. Worm always was good to me there and I enjoyed seeing him along with everyone else there too.
