Dad today The Lord called you home. So many memories in 46 years. I can still see you camping with your tan pants, white t shirt with your sleeve turned up to hold your cigarette pack. Christmas mornings watching the grandkids opening gifts and you always told them, don’t get up before 9am.... they didn’t listen cause they had us up at 7:00! You loved it 💕and oh let us not forget the “snake”! I could go on and on but just know you will be missed and you are respected and loved always!!! Love your other daughter Bonnie 😇😢💕💙😘
