Pepaw I only got to spend a week with you when Mike and I came to Texas. But in that week I realized just what a special man you were. Not only were you loved and respected by your family but your friends as well. They say it takes years to get to know someone but I felt I got to know you so much in one short week. Your smile, your sense of humor. Your love for your family. Your cute little ways, like holding your coffee cup up to be refilled. Your devotion to your grandchildren was so amazing to see. Your love for Mike and Scott shown in your eyes every time you looked at them. Pepaw you will be truly missed and as you sit in heaven looking down on all of us know that we all loved you so very much.

Dad, I love you so much. Your death was so unexpected. I never would have been ready for you to go to heaven. I was told at an early age” If you become half as much as of a man as your Daddy is, you’ll be a hell of man.” Dad I’m still trying to get there. You are my main rock. I know I have to keep going, but it so hard without you. I know where you are now, you will never be lonely again. Love you

A life well lived is a precious gift of hope and strength and grace. There will never be enough words to describe who you are and what you meant to all of us. It’s never easy to say goodbye, but we were all so blessed with so many years and honored to call you our Pepa.
