I remember in the summer when the kids are swimming or using the sidewalk chalk on the driveway the grill was going. I can hear his laugh now and the funny stories.
Some nights he would come outside with his guitar and play and Marsha would sing 💜.

His sweet tea and grilled chicken 😍 in the backyard as his grandbabies are swimming or using sidewalk chalk on the driveway, him spending time in his garage always working on something.
I have so many memories of him it's hard to not keep typing.

Marsha and Pam,
My heart is breaking for you guys, but I know God will see you through this.
We had many good times and good talks sitting around the kitchen table with you and Tommy. There were so many laughs and so much love shared there. It was so evident that the two of you loved each other and were so happy together all these years. I love you guys and the rest of the family and I miss you all!
God is holding your hands!
With all my love and prayers,
