You are the light of my world, my life will never be the same. I have been so amazed this week of the legacy you have left behind...comments from people we haven't seen for 50 years or people we saw 2 weeks ago before you got sick, what your testimony meant to them, I just pray our grandchildren learn from this that if they love and live for the LORD people DO notice and remember. I love you my cowboy and will forever. Wait for me!
