    Granddad I will miss you! You were a great man I remember when I was just a little girl you taught me how to line dance and I have so many other great memories with you. I’m sorry we didn’t get to see each other one last time, but I know your looking down on all of us right now and I know you’d want us to keep smiling! Until we meet again I love you and R.I.P.
    P.S. Keep an eye on Reese he will be 2 this year and I know he would have loved you just as much as all of us <3

    Dad was a kind, gentle man who will be remembered for his amazing woodworking talents. The creations we have hanging in our home that were made from hands are more valuable than anything else we could possible own. They have always meant a lot but now have even more meaning. The kids all have such wonderful memories of the time spent on the lake and the amazing house you built. I will always be indebted to you for pulling David in from his fall off of the pontoon inches from him hitting the water!!! You even lost your prize fishing pole because of it.

    We love you and will miss you but see your face and hear your voice every time we see the love you gave us from your own hands hanging on our walls. We know you are with the Lord and will see you again.

    Bruce and Becky

    Upsetting that I didn’t get to go back down and visit after a couple of years ago. The new house was beautiful and we had so much fun visiting. It was the first time I was there since I was a baby. I remember my Dad always telling me how good of a cook you were and how smart. He was definitely right! Your chili was the best. Glad that you’re in a better place and went peacefully.
