To my love. We met later in life but the 20 years we shared were to the fullest. In travel you showed me things I had only seen in pictures, Grand Canyons, desert, tumble weeds, Hoover Dam, my first ferry ride, too many others to mention.
You always told me you loved me at least once a day and always good night. You just didn't know how much that meant to me. My kids loved you and will miss you too. You just didn't realize how big your families were and how much you were loved. You even stole Buddy's heart. So until we meet again honey, you enjoy your journey. So many are waiting to see you. I already miss you terribly. Good night my sweet, I love you! Your Peggy

I am so very glad that I got to see you a few months ago. You looked and sounded so good. That laugh.....We did laugh a lot. When you laughed it was so infectious it made everyone laugh. I will miss that. I will also miss the phone calls the "hey sis, How ya doin?" I now know that there weren't enough of them. All kinds of memories are coming back to me, all good ones. I went to visit mom today, and I could swear I heard her say, John's ok, He's here with us. No more pain. He's in a good place. Now there's another set of eyes to watch over all us down here. You will be will be very, very missed, You are loved and will be loved forever. Sleep well Big Bro.

I remember the time's we went camping, you and mom 7 kids with 7 friends put a couple of cousins and the magic of child hood began! I remember the boys camp and girls camp us kids raiding them with flashlights. As the 14 kids and a cousin ran by the camp you and mom would smile known we up to something. The shock on your faces when all the boys and girls came after us! But your smiles got bigger when put our finger to our lips to say ssss! Wasn't the first camping trip nor the you dad rest in peace..say hi to mom and the boys for me💕💕💕

Grandpa you were such an amazing and fun man! I always loved those visits from you when you were still traveling.
Your great grandson Caden was blessed to share his birthday with you and that is something that he has loved to tell people.
I was blessed that you and Tracy made a surprise visit so long ago to see your great granddaughter Brooke being born.
There's so many memories I have that I will cherish forever ♥
My family (Cory, Brooke & Caden) are sad that you had to leave everyone, but blessed you're no longer in pain.
You will be missed so much by so many people 💗
Love Jeff ~I still use this nickname you gave me to this day

Grandpa, you were a man I admired my whole life. The love you and Grandma shared was always my cornerstone of what marriage and strength should be. Truth be told, I think my husband is a lot like you. Every time I was around you, you were always busy building something in the wood shop or down at the pier preparing or pulling crab traps. The moment’s in-between, sitting with Grandma at the table while she played solitaire silently loving her.

The stories and many laughs we got to share the past few months are moments that I will treasure. Hearing about your childhood and the stories of your mother, the love really came through in them. Sharing with you the newest headache your great grandson Ethan was causing that particular week was a never-ending laugh fest. Trading silly looks with you as mom was trying to tell you something for the umpteenth time but we weren’t listening. These are some of the few things I will carry in my heart.

A life well lived is a precious gift. It is filled with moments, sweet and sometimes sad. We make it through the tears to get to the laughter. “Oh Grandpa, tell me ‘bout the good old days “-The Judds

Grandpa, I love you and I’m sad you’re no longer here physically, but I’m happy to know you’re no longer in pain. I believe your energy/spirit will remain with me always and I look forward to our new way of communicating. When I think of you, I think of Texas, chicken on a string dangling off the pier to catch crabs, cleaning those crabs, a whistle to tell us to get home, shellacked crabs, daily trips to the grocery store, butter milk and porsh, Galveston and driving on the beach, making you jump out of your chair with a surprise visit after we moved to Virginia, the bay-oh the bay, hurricane Alicia, the Jones’s across the street and trading your newspaper for theirs, the big pier, road trips, hiding my vegetables under my plate so I could leave the table, el cominos, heat so hot the roads looked like they were melting, funny jokes, M.A.S.H., the evening news, Hee Haw, cutting my forehead open on a feather pillow and watching you tear it apart to find out why...My childhood memories stem from my life with you and I thank you for that.

I love you, your granddaughter Tania.
