Mr. Woodson was very kind soul. I remember when dating his daughter fleshly out of high school with no car. Mr. Woodson would let me drive his car.

Granddad you said you couldn't wait to meet your great great grandson and that you did. I joked about how y'all had the same hairstyle. And you said yup we sure do.

To my family
I was so happy I was able to see my granddad before he made his transition. We talked, laughed, and even shared our last dance. Granddad you lived a good life and I'm glad I was a part of it. Rest peacefully❤
