Jenelle Little

On the outside he acted as if he was big and bad, but deep down he had a heart of gold and he was more bark than bite. My favorite memory is a few days before he passed I was visiting and Mom and James were talking about a blanket mom had laid across Jimmy's lap. For some reason my name came up (from Jimmy) and James told him that I was sitting right behind him, so I moved closer to him so he could see me. He looked at me and very excitedly exclaimed, "there you are, you did show up"! Then he grabbed my hand and held tight. I hate that I didn't get to go back to see him before he passed. He will be greatly missed.

I have so many memories of dad growing up .
I remember him when I was little waiting on daddy everyday to get home from work . Mom would let me go out side and sit on the top step when it was time for him to come home . I would sit there just waiting to be the first to see him . He would come around the corner walk in the door way to the steps and I can remember him looking up at the top of the step and see me sitting there waiting with a huge smile on my face . He would have his black lunch box in hand with his tall thermos In the other .. , he would bend down hand me his thermos then pick me up and carry me in the house with him . He would say to me everytime how is baby girl doing ? I would just look at him , fine and give him a big hug and kiss and tell him i was glad he was home . I was a daddy little girl . I loved him so much . In my heart I will all ways be his little girl .
I love you daddy your little girl

I will always remember the little things about my Papa. Trying his best to convince my dad to allow him to buy me a horse, the gold bracelet with my name engraved in it, how big his smile would get, and him telling me he was proud of me at my graduation. These are my favorite memories of him.
