Karen Yancey I am sorry to find out about the death of my family's former neighbor. We grew up purchasing from their business while living "cross the tracks", only live behind him. Pittman, you and your family are in my prayers.

Lydia Rose Please accept our sincere condolences on the loss of Mr. Henry. One of my memories of him was his enjoyment in doing word search puzzles. He also had excellent navigation skills for a man in his 90s! Now he sleeps awaiting the return of His Lord and Savior. Maranatha!

Kathleen Jones Henry Pittman was my uncle. I am having great sadness over the loss of my uncle, he was a big part of our lives. He was a "gentle giant" full of love, compassion, kindness, and a great passion for his family and a greater love for the Lord. I have never heard a cross word from him,and he saw the good in everyone. I will miss talking and visiting with him, but I will always cherish the knowledge, wisdom, and conversations. . .I will always remember the twinkle in his eyes and will continue to be grateful that God allowed us to share the same DNA. I know that he is now resting from the labor of his hands; resting from the troubles of the world; and we will meet again when Jesus returns. Rest well thou good and faithful servant! Joy cometh in the morning!
