    Joyce, so sorry to hear of Hiram passing. We all have our appointed time, we and our love ones just always want it to be a little longer in the future. My thoughts & prayers are and will be with you and Whitney's family. So thrilled to know Hiram had a grandson he got to see and know before his passing. Hiram was truly a good man on this earth. I've known Hiram since 1979 when I too worked for Barnhardt Mfg . And we have had many conversations, laughs, golfing and interactions as good friends too. He was always a good, consistent and dependable friend. He loved a good joke or two and he and I shared many. Still fondly remember our party get to gathers at our homes and comradeship at and away from work. I'm hoping to be at his funeral and to give you and Whitney's family my condolences in person. If not know I'm there in spirit. Unfortunately we have just been notified that Lindsey my son Jason;s wife and mother of 4 little boys-oldest 7, has been diagnosed with stage 4 terminal cancer. But be assured Hiram and ya'll will be remembered.
