This is one of my favorite pictures of my Granddaddy. He was the kind of grandparent that would make sure we were never bored when we were visiting him and my Nana; from adventuring through the woods and sliding down huge leafy hills to teaching me to drive in his small white truck when I was only 13, this amazing man is a part of so many memories that I hold dear to my heart. I’m going to miss his crazy stories of the past and his loving presence more than I can describe, but I know he (and the big mouth bullfrog) will always be with me. <3

Sam Ledbetter will be missed on this earth but I pray his family will find comfort in knowing that they have a deposit in heaven waiting for them. I’m sure the reunion in heaven with his angel, Krista, was beautiful and others who have gone before him. Prayers for all who are grieving and already missing him. God is good and his peace and comfort will see them through this time. Love to all of the family.

Mr. Ledbetter was such a kind man who loved the Lord and his family. I enjoyed knowing him through his daughter Rhonda. I loved listening to him tell stories of when he was younger. I know he will be greatly missed but I know he was thrilled to see Krista standing at the gates of heaven waiting for him!! Prayers for his sweet family!❤️
