We have lost a Friend and Cowboy… He is now riding in Heaven. Rest In Peace My Friend. Love  ❤️ and Prayers to the family…🕊 🙏🕊 from Tommy & Martha Hebert Richard 🕊🙏

  7. Mr and Mrs Hinton were both sweet neighbors and friends. I went to school with David and Shayne.  I remember when I was about 9-10 we lived across the pasture from them. Roy and I were playing and I tied him up to the clothes line pole. Playing cowboy and Indians I guess. He got so mad I was afraid to let him loose. Mr Hinton heard him hollering across the field and came over. He went to find mom in the house. He said Shirley you know you have a kid tied up. She was watching TV and didn’t hear him. He let him loose. I think Roy was afraid to do anything because he knew Mr Hinton was the Law.  Good for me. We will be praying for the family 

  8. There are never the right words to say when we lose someone but I will try
    I Have known Mr Allen since late 60’s as a pickup man and flanking bulls at the rodeo. He was a rock of a man and gained cowboys respect. His word and handshake was “Bond”. A big tree in the Old School Forest has fallen but will never forgotten. So sorry for your loss,
