    Sending my deepest sympathies to the family. I spent much of my childhood at Nottoway. I learned to swim at the pool
    At Nottoway with some of the Harrison clan. Many great memories of time spent with a wonderful family.

    We have loss such a wonderful man. He was always kind and giving to anyone he ever met. Thirty years ago when I met him thru his eldest son David he warmly and openly welcomed me into his home and then a few years after that when David and I married he made sure that I knew and felt I was family. Even after David and I were divorced he and Marjorie made sure that I felt always welcomed in their home and was still loved by them both. David and I had 2 sets of identical twin boys Albert, Austin, Josh and Jared and I watched as they grew up how proud of them and his true love as a Grandfather he gave to each of them. He was a loved and respected man. And since we all learn to live our own lives by the example we saw, I know my boys will have some big shoes to fill.

    My heart goes out to family and friends of Corling, Jr. He and Bill were my first bosses as a teenager. My sisters and I all 3 waited tables at Nottoway when we weren't working on the farm. I have lots of fond memories of my time at Nottoway and being with the Harrison family. Big hugs to all of you!

    I am going to miss my old friend LC. I can easily say that he never met a stranger and was a people person. He always made me feel as if I was at my own home when I visited with him and the restaurant. I remember the days when he would bring Ben and I lunch or dinner while we were fishing. It was always a tasty treat from the restaurant or something he had cooked up at the hunting club himself. LC brightened up any social event that he attended. I understand why he was nicknamed "Flywheel" by his hard work ethic and personality. He was always a pleasure to be around. He will be missed by many and never forgotten.
