having stayed in Chattanooga after college I was so excited to tell my mom that I had ran into Mr. Cobbin (Shack) from Mississippi. It was great to know someone who you could listen to old family stories with or who knew your FOLKS! He always brought back the good memories of my Summer days with my aunt Bee and my grandfather Mr. Roy Lee. I always been told we were family and he treated me as such. very much appreciated that. He will be missed for I knew he was know as the Life of the Party! Rest well and tell my FOLKS Hi! Jackie Thomas
