I remember the first time going to mom and dads house for the first time as a foster child. Mom was doing someones hair in the home salon and dad was in his chair eatting rocky road ice cream.. Dad and mom both showed love to me and my sister and welcomed us in to their home when they didnt have to keep us.. They decided to adopt both me and my sister make us their children as well..

Dad was always silly in grocery stores... And every one loved him he was a man of God and both him and mom taught us kids well.

I remember living in Unionville and dad was working at the city of bloomington. And every weekday he would come home we would watch judge judy and law and order together and never missed one show.. Dad even taught me how to drive Driving with him was the best when i would go to parallel park was the best because he would scare me and say "watch it watch it.."thinking i was going to hit something.. But it was just two styrofoam polls on the side of the drive way. He would say oh my you just hit the curb. Even tho there wasnt a curb it was just a poll he made it seem so real... Dad in general is just a sweet careing guy. And even tho he is gone he will never be forgotten.. Its still shocks me today that he left to meet with Jesus.. But im glad to hear he's not suffering anymore. I love u dad forever and always

Mom i pray for u daily and i love u so much...❤💋

Much love kimberlee

There are too many wonderful memories I have with my grandfather. The summers we always fun, fishing for crawdads, helping set up for Fourth of July, catching Lightning Bugs. Sam’s club was always a treat, getting our slice of pizza and giant cookie. Of course on the way to the food court Grandpa would walk with a limp and yell at us for leaving him just to embarrass us all. I loved seeing him with his great grandchildren the last 6 years. They loved their Papa very much and he would pester them just as much as he would to us when we were younger. We love you Grandpa and you will never ever be forgotten.
