Granddaddy and I had some good memories. When I was a very little girl he had rabbits that he raised. I remember he gave me one and from their I started raising rabbits. He loved when we could come visit and I remember one time , we were watching a movie called cujo. He snuck up and made this scary noise and made us all jump. He laughed so hard. He loved doing things like that. We laughed for many years over that dog and him scaring us. He was so proud of his time on the kemp
Fire department. It was one of his greatest achievements. He was made a lifetime honorary volunteer fireman and he loved that title. Granddaddy there are so many memories. You will not be forgotten. Go rest high on that mountain, your work on earth is done.
Love your granddaughter
