Mr. Vann was a wonderful person he always greeted us with a big smile, he will truly be missed by his loved ones but you'll have all the great memories from photos or when something is said around the dinner table, glad you were all blessed with his life. RIP Mr. Billy Vann.

Several times, JW and I would take Mr Vann to Mom's Diner for lunch. This was his favorite place to eat grilled cheese, onion rings and root beer. We loved listening to the stories that he shared with us about his life and experiences. When Mr Vann no longer felt like going out, we would order the food and go have lunch with him at his house. He became like family to us. He will be greatly missed, but we know that is legs no longer hurt and he can walk, see and hear! We know that because of his faith, he is now in his mansion next door to Jesus! May all his family be comforted by his faith and knowing that he is walking the streets of gold with Jesus!
