      ---------------------------------
      A note from his great grandson:
      I was only 2 years old when he died so I don't remember him. But I do know what kind of person he was.
      He was always referred to as E.B. or "Red Griffin" He was always in a good mood even went things weren't
      going so good. He had a red complexion on his face that's how he received the nickname "Red". He was very
      well respected in this community. He was a member of Arlington Christian Church In Arlington, Ky. His funeral
      services were held there. All of the business' in Arlington closed that day for the funeral. The town was shut
      down but that church sure was busy. They say it was standing room only inside and people were lined up
      down the street on the outside. All of my life I have heard stories about him, But never a bad thing said.
      It makes me sad that I didn't know him....but I'm I very proud that he was and is my Great Grandfather.

      Mike
