When tomorrow starts without us, Please try to understand, that an angel came, called our names and took us by the hand. The angel said our place was ready, in heaven far above and that we would have to leave behind, all those we dearly loved. But when we walked through Heaven's gates, we did not feel alone, for God looked, smiled at us, and told us "Welcome Home." So when tomorrow starts without us, don’t think we're far apart, for every time you think of us, we’re right there in your heart.

Chuck (Pap) & Babe, you will forever be in our hearts

I will always keep my memories with Pap close to my heart. He always had a smile on his face and never a bad word to say about anyone. He let my kids and grandkids tag along to collect the chicken eggs, go see the horse and shew the Turkeys or chickens away when one of the kids would get chased. He loved all animals big and small. I remember the milking cows and the bull they had when I first met him and Babe. I remember going down to the stock yard with both of them as well. He loved Babes pies and rolls just as much as the rest of us. I am sad yet happy that now he has returned home to God and is with Babe again.
