    We send our sympathy and live to the family. We will always remember Brother Waddell. He had a beautiful smile. It warmed our hearts to know how he loved to read aloud God’s Word. He set a fine example for all of us.

    Family we are so sorry for your loss of Uncle Toostie. I will always remember he had a part of my life as a baby. He gave me my nickname Rice as I tell this story I am happy that it stuck with me all my life. The story is my little baby teeth looked like rice grains to him. Everyone had a nickname he and my dad made sure. Rest until resurrection.
