What will I do without the Hines family historian? My cousin, David, always had answers about grandma and grandpa, their house, his aunts and uncles, New Orleans, dates, and etc.. What a great memory he was blessed to have.
May the Lord grant him eternal rest.

Dad, I don’t even know where to start. All the memories and fun times as a family. Trips, camping, church, raking leaves, swerving the car back and forth to annoy us or to make us laugh, building sled rides on the side of the house, making sure we knew what family is, remodeling your houses, spending time with all the kids and grandkids, making sure you push all of them to make something more of their lives, taking pictures for years to come, and most all just loving us all. Thank you for all those wonderful memories. Thank you for being our dad and loving husband to our mom! You will truly be missed. Until we meet again! ❤️❤️
