This breaks my heart. Sending prayers for peace for you all. DeeDee, your Daddy was such a sweet man. I know he was your world and family was his. I will never forget driving out of town for a work trip and being lost at night. We were on the phone and your dad didn’t hesitate to hop right on the phone and stay on it and help until I got where I needed to be. Such a sweet man. I will never forget that. Love you and miss you. Know I’m here for you. -Ceson

We love you to the moon and back Daddy. Thank you for all that you did for us especially making sure we never went without. Thank you for the unconditional love you showed us all. We can’t wait for Ellie to be old enough for us to tell her all about you. We will make sure she knows just how much her Pawpaw loves her and how she had a guardian angel before she was even born. We will all see you again one day Daddy just save us a spot.
