Pops,
I remember when we spent all day on a Sunday washing and waxing the "Dragon wagon" which I totalled the following morning. The days I would come down and help me wash my white Dodge and the last time came out and we washed my dad's Mustang. I took the opportunity to do a photo op of you and Maw Maw together. I was so looking forward to coming back out here to take you for a ride in my new car, I guess I was a little to late for that one but now you can ride shotgun with me forever. Love you Pop!

Although the circumstances of our reunion were less than ideal last year I’m grateful I made the long trip down to see you. Thank you for all the laughs you shared with me, the road trip in your semi, the countless days you let me stay over bugging you while I lived in Georgia and the many other memories I have with you. I will miss you PawPaw but I know you’re in a better place reunited with MawMaw and can finally eat all the candy you want without having to worry about your blood sugar.

Rest In Peace PawPaw, hug MawMaw for me.
