    BLACKBURN of tennessee in the house of representatives Wednesday, February 13, 2013 Mrs. BLACKBURN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to a great leader, a great citizen, and a great man. Ed Moody, ``Mr. Franklin,'' was a dear friend to many and a guiding force to a wonderful community. All those who knew him will miss him.

    World War II veteran, owner of Moody Tires, and Elder Emeritus of The People's Church, Ed Moody dedicated his life to the service of others. He was a member of the Franklin Noon Rotary Club, trustee for the Williamson County Hospital, and served on the Williamson County Chamber of Commerce. From the YMCA to the Franklin Rodeo, there are not many areas of life in Williamson County that have not been touched by Ed Moody's admirable dedication.

    There are those souls, Mr. Speaker, whose lights guide the way even after they are dimmed. Ed Moody's legacy will be one of great influence and will shape the future of Williamson County for generations to come. I ask my colleagues to join with me in celebrating the life and service of ``Mr. Franklin'' as we offer our sympathies to Eileen and their family.
