I cherish the many happy memories that I have with my Paw Paw, like the many weekends I would spend at their house. Riding with him on his lap while he cut the grass, even holding me as I fell asleep, or sitting with him and listening as he read me one my favorite dinosaur or train books. Even as I got older, helping him get chores done around the house just so I could spend time with him. He had a heart of gold, he was one of the best men I've ever known, and one of my biggest role models. The world is a lesser place without him, and he will be sorely missed. I love you Paw Paw.

Until we meet again in Heaven.

Pawpaw, thank you so much for your sacrifice to serve us and our country. I will never forget all the times we sat in the garage and just talked. You never failed to make me laugh and smile. I love you so much and I’m going to miss you greatly.

Love,

Your Grandson, Trevor

Dad,
It comforts me to know that you are in our Father's Kingdom and we will meet again. You were the best father a son could ask for. You taught me so much. I will miss your pearls of wisdom, advice and humor. You had a heart of gold. Although no farewells were spoken, you had a journey to make. My tears will flow, laughter will be heard as well and I will forever hold you in my heart. I will never forget you. Until we meet again.

Your Son, Jeff
