So many memories I can’t just name one.
I definitely had no idea the last time I was at the house it would be my last time if ever see you. I’m not ready to let you go as much as God must have needed you I’m not at all ready.
Papaw’s are supposed to live forever. What I would give to have another day even just another hour with you. I’d sit and talk politics with you for as long as I could although I hated it.. you absolutely loved to tell story’s and y’all politics. What I’d give to be able to go to 129 restaurant with you one more time. What I’d give to hear you say “now fix you mirror, put your seatbelt on, check your radio, are you situated? Ok, now you can pull out of the driveway.” So many memories I’ll never have just one favorite..
Me and the kids sure will miss you more then you have ever imagined you could be missed. I keep thinking it’s just an awful dream and your going to be on the front row my wedding day. What I would give for you to ask for a Diet Coke or how to work the tv or to hook something up or to even just come get granny out of your hair for a few hours.. I still need you!! My kids still need you!!! You was and will forever be my Rock and my Hero!! You held our family together.. I’m not sure what I’ll do without you. Forever my hero and best papaw in the universe!!!
