I’ll always miss you Papa, I’ll never forget how when the grandkids would stay the night with you and Nana, you would make the best pancakes for us the next morning.
Clint will grow up knowing who you were, I’m so glad you got meet Clint on christmas, and the time we shared while fixing the house up before you sold it to mom and dad. I’ll forever love you Papa. When I go visit Nana now I will visit both of you.

Not sure where to even begin Dad....words can not express how lucky i am to have had you in my life or how lost i am without you. We didn't always see eye to eye on things and that was okay because beyond everything we loved each other unconditionally as any parent child does. I am blessed with so many fun and great memories of things we did together. From family vacations or to you teaching me to drive. Memories that i hold close and cherish dearly. I will never forget! I love you dad and will forever be one of your daughters. ❤
