We have received the following information from Richard Pettys, Jr. about funeral arrangements for his father:
“On behalf of my mother, my brothers and me we thank you all for the kind words of support and love. We are truly overwhelmed. We knew Dad was special. We did not know he was *this* big of a deal. Your words have been a point of light in these dark times and a source of order amidst the chaos. We are truly overwhelmed. The only thing we could possibly add to what had been said is that he was a wonderful husband and a great father. We miss him terribly. We are forever in your debt for the kind words and sentiments that have helped ease our pain. Thank you for allowing “the Dean” and “the Legend” to be our husband and dad.”
Visitation is Sunday from 4 to 7PM at Patterson’s Spring Hill. The funeral Mass is Tuesday at 3PM at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Cleveland, GA.
