Hey Brother,
Just thinking of you as I do every single day, also talked to your beloved Ashley and our sister Christi today, and yes, the subject was mainly about you my sweet brother..I am trying my best to be strong for all brother but it is so difficult to accept the fact you are really gone..we all know you are with all who went before you, and no longer in pain, but still doesn't ease our broken hearts..they say time helps with it all..well, I believe that time only helps with acceptance of losing you..not the healing in our hearts..memories and the love you left behind will remain with us all until the day we see and are with you and others again my dear brother..until then, please give my love to all around you Paul Ray ..I love you with every part of my being..rest in sweet heavenly peace my big brother.. ❤

I have known Paul Ray for many years as Doc Nelson and I worked with him to get the VA benefits he was entitled to. He was an Honorable man and Marine and will be missed. Semper Fi, Paul Ray.

My handsome, wonderful Papa,

You were the one who gave me my family nickname: Lissa Rennie. You always had a big teddy bear smile when your great-grandchildren were walking up the driveway to hug you. The love on your face will forever be in my memory. You and Nanny tried your best to be there for us grandchildren. Y’all loved us so much. We were lucky to have you and Nanny as grandparents. I am gonna miss your crazy personality. It doesn’t seem real. You were the matriarch of the family. What are we gonna do without you? I feel a little lost and heartbroken since you went to be with Nanny. Tell her hi and that I miss her for me. Tell Great-Nanny and everyone else hi too. We will meet again. See you soon my amazing Papa. I love you!

Oh papa.

I miss you so terribly much. How do I wake up everyday and go on knowing you’re not with me. My partner in crime. I will miss doing everything with you. I’ll miss our rides in your truck. I’ll miss staying up late with you. I will miss ruining errands and going to the doctor with you. I will literally miss everything about you. I will even miss your toenails you used to leave behind for me to find, or your snot rags. I miss your slobbery kisses and you getting mad at me for wiping them off. I will miss Orion spending time with you in the garage and I miss your sweet panda bear smile every time I pull in to our home. I love you my dearest papa. I love you whole bunches. And I love you more. And don’t worry we will see each other “in just a sec.”

My Papa,
It seems unreal to me that you’ve gone but I have a few things I’ll keep close to my heart to get me through. Like the feeling of you holding my hand while rubbing it across your scruffy face. The smell of the house after you took your showers. The sound of your infectious laughter. The taste of the best egg sandwich I’ve ever had. And finally the sight of your beautiful, panda bear smile. I thank God I got to spend as much time as I did with you. I’ll see you and Nanny again, I know it. ❤️
