He was our Baldie. Till this day I still dont remember him with hair on top of his head. He loved his mustache, his JTS Brown and his westerns. He would give you the shirt off his back. I love you Daddy. Enjoy being reunited with Momma, we know you were ready to see her again. Hugs & kisses sent your way❤❤ We had the best!
