I miss you with all my heart not a day goes by that I don’t think of you. I remember being a little girl maybe 4 or 5 and you teaching me the Lord’s Prayer and teaching me all the knowledge you had of the Bible from the beginning to the end. I also remember you teaching me how to be able to take a joke and the m&ms flying all over the kitchen. On cold mornings before school you would fix me cheese toast and hot chocolate. Our walks in the woods and you showing me what I could eat and what not to eat going blackberry picking too. You taught me how to ride a bike into a rose bush haha. when you taught me to drive your truck and even though I was grinding the gears you never got ill at me. My wedding day you walked me down the isle and before we prayed. The day I became a mother for the 1st time and then the 2nd time. Then we had two boys for you to teach and I’m so grateful for you and you taught them well they love you so much. You have been with me through it all. You are the best a girl could ever have as a pap. I’m a little bit lost with out you but I know that you will always watch over us. I love you to the moon and back pap paw. I miss you so much. Until we meet again I love you more.
Private services will be held at a later date.
Kirksey Funeral Home of Morganton has the honor of serving the family.
