He was always bringing us vegetables from their garden. he hauled many a load of dirt to me when I was building our house in Martin Springs. I had to stick money in his pocket and run , because he never would give me a price. Very Good man, not many like him, left around anymore. Rest in Peace my friend. Ronnie & Gail Morris
