  2. From an email from Mary Susan Fleshood to Eric S. Fleshood on 13 Sep 2010: "On Jan2003 Daddy died in South Hill Community Hospital in South Hill, Va   He was cremated and his ashes were spread over all his favorite places – his work house, all his favorite hunting places around Green Town.  We saved some to be buried in the Fleshood site in Lawrenceville, Va cemetary (old part).  Kell, Tommy Green (June's son & only child), Andrew Green, June and I drove all around that winter day, remembering,laughing, and sometimes crying – knowing this is exactly what he would have wanted us to do.  While he was in a comathat day, we all gathered around and told stories about our family and thethings that had happened during our lives. We laughed, and cried, patted his hands and head, rubbed his feet, and then, he just stopped breathing.  DavidFleshood spoke at Daddy's Memorial Service at Lawrenceville BaptistChurch.  I also spoke, told stories about Daddy (those that were acceptable in Church!), and his good friend, Buzzy__________________(cannot remember his last name – That, Kell will know.) also spoke.  The church was standing room only and afterwards, saw and visited with So Very Many People had not seen in decades!   It may be bad to say but I had The Most Fun after his service.  He would have Loved it!"
