Dear Sonny, I loved you and am so grateful that I got to be your daughter in law. Ronnie is such a wonderful blessing and you are part of why he is so special. Sometimes you forgot my name and we laugh that I was your number one daughter in law. The day you got baptized I could not be there and it was heartbreaking not to share that with you. But I was so proud and will see you heaven with our Lord. My favorite memories are you and your camera. I loved to be in your pictures. I will always smile when I think of you. Thank you for all you did for us and the Kids. You are a great Pawpaw. Missing you already . Valerie

Dirty hands, free gas, hard working, and a loving lap to hold his grandkids. He was always there for his family.
That was our Pawpaw.
