  • So very sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Battle. When I met him ‘back in the day’ he was always nice and polite and a Dad to be proud of. I remember Missy would talk about him often, even in our early years as kids.
    Love and Prayers to the entire family and know that you guys will all be joined together one day.
    God Bless.
