We love you more than you will ever know , Pop. Thank you for everything you have given us. I couldn’t have asked for a better grandfather that you. After many years of suffering and pain you are now free from it all. You will be terribly missed by everyone. We will see you again someday. I’m going to miss having someone to go to Hardee’s with and getting biscuits and gravy talking about some auburn football. You always told us it was our fault you got pneumonia because of our outdoor mid March wedding but we know you would do it over again one hundred times because you loved your family and would do anything for them. We will love you forever and always, pop.

Until we see you again,
Ryan and Brittany

Pop, We will miss you more than you will ever know! Thank you for always being so good to us & making sure we could have the best life possible for our children. You were always there for us through everything. Helping prepare our first home to bring our sweet baby to, always being just a phone call away when we needed you, & just always being the listening ear and shoulder for us to cry on. You are no longer in any pain & can finally rest and be at ease. We will never forget you Pop. We love you so much!
