So very sorry to here about Hiram.  We had lots of good times growing up.  Though I lost touch with
him through the years,  I  Remember Friday nights when he would pull up to my house with one of his
old cars he just got running.  He was a great mechanic even very young!  God bless the Pettey family and 
God be with Hiram !!  I will plant a tree at my shop,  in his memory!.

Verdell, may the memories of your years together sustain you during this loss of Hiram. From one sax player to another, keep the  music going!  I will not forget the "mean sax "you sang so long ago. Time to sing for Hiram. How about "On the wings of love" by Jeffrey Osborn. "Just smile for me, And let the day begin,. You are the sunshine That lights my heart within. "  Hang on to those good times my friend.

Hiram leaves behind a legacy we all could learn from. Always the happy-go-lucky, kind and driven guy that everyone loved.
