Daddy, the sadness is all around me. I keep thinking of all the good times we had at y'alls house. The parties, holidays, running with Chiquita in the back, and picking the oranges from the trees. I will really miss going to that house. May you rest in peace in heaven. Love you daddy...

Saturday nights Mr. AJ and I would watch his county music line up.👍🤗 We'd laugh, and cry together. (At the music, and even the commercials). We'd watch everything from "Hee - Haw", to the "Country Diner", to "The Grand Ole Opry". Even The Polka. And we'd laugh at them. 😂 See, not a one of them could dance right. He'd say all they were doing was jitter-buggin'! We'd laugh.
I felt a special conntion to him with that. See, my grandpa used to play the "Statler Brother's" every morning before school. He had my sister Lindsey and I singing "Power in the Blood" and "The Sweet By-and-by" on our way to St. Theresa every morning before school. 🙂💕 Listening with him,
I felt like "My" grandpa was watching; right there with us! I will cherish every single day that I was blessed to have been able to spend any time with him. He was a Great man, wonderful friend, as well as A great father and grandfather! I love you Mr. AJ. - You will always have a special place in my heart forever. 💕 Love, Valerie.

Daddy, you will be missed so much by all of us. I can remember you and I watching your "Hee Haw" so many Friday nights when I stayed with you. I'll never forget our days sitting and talking with Chicquita on your lap. Great memories that will always be cherished. Rest in Peace Daddy until we meet again. I love you and I miss you.
