Chipper and I we’re the closest in age so we played a lot together. Mostly Cowboys and Indians. Of course he had the cool Lone Ranger guns so I had to be the Indian 😂. I’m most thankful that I was attending the Bible study when he trusted Christ as his Savior. My friend and his Roger Hilliard never gave up on him. I know I will see him again in Heaven ❤️❤️

I have 2 favorite memories of my papaw.
He had a fruit and veggie stand, I was 10, we went to visit him and get peaches. He was excited to get to see me. That was enough to make a memory for me. The simpler times ya know?
When I was pregnant with my first daughter in 2010, his first great grandchild, he reupholstered and stained an old rocking chair that he gifted me looking brand new. I knew it was special then but now that I've rocked and nursed 3 babies in it,10 years later, it's one of my most prized possessions and sits in my living room.
I can't express how much I miss you. I know you are proud of me and I know you are not hurting any longer. But I miss you.

I can't express all of my memories of my Dad,
But i will tell the few that I can.
He never met a stranger,and was willing and able to help anyone. He showed love,and compassion openly. He also taught me how to be humble and caring, but he also taught me to be a man that could shake hands look someone in the eyes and speak straight forward.
With those few, but important lessons I can,and will remember and share those caricature traits for my lifetime. So Dad on that note thank you , and I love you as. I have told you daily.when you see our family give them a great Big hug from me . I will be beside you all soon.
