I am writing to extend my deepest sympathies
To you and your family i was so very sad to hear
About pawpaw he was such a wonderful man.

Lord, Shepherd my pawpaw today
In green pastures let him lay
To still waters guide his way
Restoreth his soul, I pray

Lead him in the paths of right
Through the valley give him light
When he's afraid ease his fright
With Thy rod and staff lend might

Prepare a table of spoil
Annointest his head with oil
Give to him a cup that's royal
Let goodness follow his toil

And Thy mercy cease never
May he dwell in Thy house forever
This I ask in Jesus' name, Amen

A heart of gold stopped beating, Two twinkling eyes closed to rest, God broke our hearts to prove he only takes the best. Never a day will go by that you will be in our hearts . Pop's i can still see you and mike out side teaching Destine how to spit. Both of you were laughing so hard at her i thought you too would fall over. I will miss you Love you POP'S
