It was a pleasure knowing this Man of God. He knew my grandparents and all my Aunts and Uncles, so he was like family. And he made sure that we all knew not only Jesus loved us but he did to.

To the Nipper family, Mr. Nipper was just a easy man to love. Mr.Nipper will be truly missed. I can hear him singing I’m Home. I loved to hear him sing and pray. He called me his personal nurse. The day we cleaned his room he talked about his wife and how much he missed her. Well now he is home with Mrs. Ruth. I will miss hearing God Loves you and so do I. Our prayers and thoughts with the family.

Papaw I'm Gonna miss you greatly. I just was dreaming about you Monday night and was hoping to get up to see you soon. I really needed one of your talks and wanted to discuss finding Jesus as usual. It would have meant so much to me to be able to have that discussion especially now, My eyes have really been opened as well as my heart the last few months and I wanted to tell you all about it. You take Memaw in your arms and give her a big hug from me and hey Remember Jesus Loves you and so do I.
