Being a southerner myself I can relate to Eustace and Preston. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing. My prayers go out to his family and Eustace. He came across on TV as a gentle and compassionate sole. He always gave credit where credit was due. He was a true friend to Eustace when he fell and was hurt. I especially like the hog killing and eating outside as my family also did this on the farm when we were kids. He will be much missed.


Sorry to hear he has past! It was a delightful person and dedicated to to his believes. Bless him and his family. He will be missed.


God bless you Preston you made so many lives just that bit more exciting and in my case wishing I was their to help you and Eustace in your endeavors. R.I.P..
