It's the little things, the small, everyday occurrences that you'll remember. The laughs, the stories, the smiles. And even though it seems like you can never recover from your loss, it is these very memories that will help push the pain away and bring back the smiles.
Love always~ Sue&Rich

So sorry for the loss of a wonderful person inside and out. Words can't express the emotions and grief felt by this loss. Paw paw will greatly be missed and never forgotten. I know he is in heaven with his loved ones and smiling down on all the family friends and loved ones left behind. May God Bless the family and loved ones at this time in life when you don't understand the why's and have questions unanswered. Love all of y'all
