Hello Pa..... it has been 3 weeks since you have been called home with the Lord. 3 whole weeks without you and it doesn’t feel real! It doesn’t feel like your gone. I feel your presence and a strong sense of happiness and peace. I worry about gramma. She has a hard time with you being gone, but for so long it has only been you and her and I know it will take time for her to adjust! Well I miss you so much! We all miss you so much! I love you Pa and I’m glad that you are in heaven with God and your mom and your brothers. I remember you saying that one day you would see your brother who died so young in the air force and now you have been reunited! You are forever in my heart Pa!! Love you!! 💗🙏
