Dad,
I sure miss you. I pray to God to give you hugs from me. I heard the song at your funeral "Love one another". I've been singing it all day long since. I can see you singing that song. I know your soul is no longer here with us & you are praising the Lord that you have waited all your life to do. I know you've waited to hear him say "Well done my son". I love you Daddy & you will be dearly missed. I know you never knew a stranger & you touched so many lives. Now Heaven is your new home & in God' s arms you dwell.
I love you!!
Sissy

I remember when Dad was in the hospital & he said "I love you baby" even when he wasn't very coherent. I remember having church at home & Dad being our preacher. He was the leader of our pack. We used to take turns getting Dad to the car after church because he had to talk to everyone. Going on car trips to Austin when we were little to see our grandparents. Dad would buy peanuts in Giddings & put them on the dashboard so they would be hot when we woke up.

Well Dad, I have so many fond memories to write but this one takes the cake.
I was in such a rush to get to your service on time that everything was going against me that morning. Finally ready, running out to the car with my shoes in hand, I jumped in the car and Sam and I took off (only a few minutes behind…whew). Driving down the Beltway we were almost there, I went to put my shoes on and they weren't there. I had left them on top of the car when we left! Frantically, we drove up and down Veterans Memorial looking for a shoe store and finally found one. You almost had a barefooted daughter attending your service. I know that you were having a good laugh with the man upstairs and I'm glad I could make you smile one more time! Dad I love you and miss you a lot. ~ Margie

Grandpa,

I will miss hearing your voice and laughter. My sadness feels selfish as I wish for more time and I should've made spending time more of a priority. I'd hoped you'd be able to meet your great grand baby who I pray will be on his or her way soon. Our Lord knows my thoughts and feelings. You mean so much to me Grandpa. I remember as a kid, when you were heading off to work you would give Caris and I a candy. For whatever reason she always wanted a cough drop (ew), but you always hooked me up and gave me a butterscotch. We would cook our candies in our little kitchen and had such a fun time. That memory always sticks with me. Grandpa, I'm happy that you are in God's loving arms now and cracking jokes with him. I'm happy that you are free. Please visit me in my dreams until we meet again. I love you with all of my heart.
