Cotton was a good-hearted person, the first time I met him we became instant friends . We actually even thought the same way, we both believed in doing everything right and in being honest.I owe a lot to Cotton, when I went into business for myself he introduced me to some good people. He helped me along the way and I will always be grateful for that!!. He would call me every morning (early) around 6 a.m. to see if I was already up and Movin'...I always prayed for God to take care of him.. I will miss him dearly, May he rest now!!

To Bonnie and Trey, words cannot express how saddened we were to hear about Cotton's passing.
I've known you and Bonnie as great friends of my parents and a lifelong best friend of my Dads, but I've also known you as a funny, kind, generous man of great character over my 55 years as I've grown up. There was never a time that I needed something done in my home, be it a repair or to set up a giant play yard for my daughter when she was young that you didn't come through for me, because you always did. Even when I bought a new home, you disassembled that same play yard and set it up for my little girl at our new home. You always had a smile on your face, a funny story to tell, and complete respect for everyone around you. You were a great family man and enjoyed telling us all how you and Bonnie met and kept us laughing with funny stories of yesteryear.
I had great admiration and respect for the man you were and thought of you as an Uncle.
You will be forever missed but the memories we all have of you will live on forever.
I hope your family takes comfort in knowing that you are in Heaven now, alongside God.
Love, Susan Eisinger and daughter Hannah
