Granddaddy, you are dearly missed. You were a great example of a husband, family leader and Christ follower. I am thankful for the time we spent together when I was a kid and also for seeing you this past summer. Until we meet again in Heaven… love your grandson Tim Allen Snelling.

Grandmommy and Granddaddy were like a second pair of parents. They listens to us, directed us, and were there for us. Here's a picture of Granddaddy holding Emma at Christine's high school graduation. He was always ready with a fishing story or a story of how the Lord changed his life. I look forward to the day when we're all together again.
