To Papa,

I'm going to miss hearing your voice say "hey baby" when I call to check in on you and grandma. I'm going to miss hearing your laugh, and your silly jokes, I'm going to miss "attempting" to teach you how to work your computer when I came to visit. :) I know this sounds crazy but I will also miss helping you manicure your toe nails (HAHA) it was a honor to assist you in anyway that I could.

The world is going to be a different place without you in it.

I wanted to thank you for teaching me to have fun, thank you for serving our country and your community, thank you for teaching me that it's okay to be the loudest one in the room, thank you for teaching me to be loving and most of all thank you for teaching me what a strong marriage looks like. You and grandma are a great example of that. I will always remember you and keep you close to my heart. You will forever be greatly missed!

Always and forever,
Brittany
