Dear Papaw,

I was extremely sad about hearing you had left us and went to
Heaven. I can remember the day we met and went down to the pond in Florida, Scotts first house, we sat and you were fishing.
You looked serene and comfortable and very happy. I asked how you liked retirement. Your response was , is there any happier place
then being able to do as I want and think what I want. He then stated that he had stopped and smelled the flowers. Made it clear he was very proud of his family and loved being around them. But added that private time was important. As usual I was just dropping by before my next flight. He warned that time flies when you are older and I needed to stop and enjoy the kids. I have done just that. Each time we visited he had a comment of wisdom and as long as you listened, it made things better. He will be always at our side. Remember how much he enjoyed fishing. I am sure he is fishing with your grandma and no longer having to worry about all of us. He was a blessing to be in our lives and in all our hearts he will stay. You will be missed and we will never forget your kindhearted words. Thanks for being in my life with Scott and Jeff and the kids and Rich. Love to you . Alan E. Edwards,MD and Nicole, Wes, Matthew, Ashley, Robyn and Danny Kerry and Logan. All my grandchildren. We are all praying for your healing will smoothly. Bless you all
