He loved bigger than anyone I've ever known without saying a word. I will miss his silly stories and jokes. I'm so thankful that I had 26 years with him as my papaw.

I remember the Christmas he talked Donna and I into getting our picture taken with Santa. We were 15 or 16 and way to old to do it but he talked us into it. This will forever bring a smile and laughter to me. He loved to tell jokes and stories. Another was how he said when he bought the first color TV and how he started dreaming in color. He loved to make people laugh. Mr. White was a very special man.
