I will miss Giles a lot. He use be sitting in chair or end of sofa whenever I came to see them. He would always (smack) his lips and call me sis. I loved that man for over 60 years. He was always happy and soft spoken. He was an example of a true Christian, husband,father and friend. He has left a true void in his family and friends. I love all of you. Keep smiling. Love, Sissy VanDaley
