I remember Mr. Faulk from Woodmen of the World, "Boys of Woodcraft" in Dothan. He was a good man and taught me and other young boys about God and country. Rest in Peace Mr. Faulk.

My grandaddy set a wonderful foundation for our family. He was an inspiration in the Gospel singing community and was loved and admired by his peers and city officials. My most memorable times were campaigning for grandaddy through coffee county, watching him in the choir at church and being the care giver for him later in life. Love ya grandaddy!! See you again one day!
