I got to have you as my grandfather for almost 44 years. Pawpaw I have so many memories of you and me laying on the couch watching HeeHaw and wrestling on Saturday nights. My most memorable moment is on April 15, 2017 when you walked me down the aisle and gave me away to Michael. Pawpaw these memories will always be with me. I love you to the moon and back. Give my daddy and grandma a big hug and kiss for me.
