What can i say, we all have our wishes that will never happen and some of us will feel some regret and wish things would have been different. But he loved all of us near and far. Regardless of how long it had been since we seen or heard from him. For some this will be easy but for others it will be hard. But as a family we will all mourn so it is our jobs to support each other the way he would have wanted.

To My PawPaw,
As much as i wish i could have spent more time with you and learned some more great knowledge from you i know you are at peace now. You are the definition of a real man and i hope my son grows up to be just as much of a man as you were. Your heart was golden and you loved everyone and everything. Imma miss you paw paw. I love you forever and always 💖
