Life Stories

Whitney (Mr. Tollivers Granddaughter)and I became friends my sophmore year in high school. it was an instant and easy friendship. Papaw (as we call Mr. Tolliver) put up with alot from us crazy teenage girls. Late nights, early mornings but ALWAYS love and kindness! At one point during my senior year I had an altercation with my parents and needed a place to stay, without hesitation he and Nana opened their doors. Whitney wasnt too keen on sharing her extra comfy bed btu she dealt with it. Every night Nana would set an extra dinner plate for me.Then Nana,papaw, whitney and sometimes megan and I would sit together and eat and talk about our crazy day. He lectured us occasionally but NEVER yelled or punished us. I will miss him but I will always be Thankful that he was part of my life, and even in spirit, always will be! Love you Tolliver Family!
