I want to thank everyone for their thoughts prayers and sweet memories of my daddy . My daddy was a good man , he worked so hard for his family . He was such a loving father , he told us everyday ! His family kids come first in his life. I am so grateful that I can say I had the perfect daddy . I miss him so much. His big blue eyes and words and held me even as a grown woman when I needed a shoulder to cry on , he was always 5 mins away. His heart died when my sister ( Sam ) was taken from us at only 15. A parents nightmare but now my only comfort I have is knowing he is in heaven with his little girl. He is home and I know I will see him and mama and Sam one day too. I miss u so much daddy , I love you always so deep in my heart you live on. Your girl. Brandi :)

U always worried about ur girls you always said the right things when I needed someone. I love u so much I know that you are happier now. Sam is there and mama. You were never the same after u lost ur baby. But you held on for me and Amy. I miss ur big blue eyes and knowing that you were ten mins away if I needed u. But we will be ok. You taught us to be strong we had to be. I will see u though daddy ! I love u so much. Every night when I go to sleep I see you sitting in ur chair smiling , my daddy my world ! I miss you. I love u. Brandi.

He was one of the best neighbors we ever had.. Sammy took care of Byron's 'fixed up' truck so many times. Amy and Brandy, you are always in my heart. I am so blessed to have had you both and "Sam" in our lives. We had lots of fun, remember the good times. Going to that old drive-in to watch a movie. Just know we all love you and wouldn't change the memories. Thank the Lord for ALL of you! God's blessing on everyone. Love, Ms.. Ruthie
