It’s hard to say “Goodbye” to the best father anyone could ever have. All of our friends would always say we were so lucky to have the best parents in the world. He was the most compassionate and caring person in the world who decorated each of our lives. His blood covered our hearts with his compassion. Daddy we love you with all our heart and it is so hard to let you go, but we know you are totally and completely healed and happy. Thanks for everything you ever taught us (loyalty, honesty, true integrity and how to care for ourselves and others). Thank you for your love and for being such a wonderful father and grandfather. Until we meet again, Christine, Cindy, Monica, Linda and Donald.
I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve taught my kids and me and all that you shared so generously with us. I will cherish you always. I love you Paw-Paw and I promise to be what you taught me to be. Thank you for everything, tell Maw-Maw I love her. Take care of my angels and I’ll see ya’ll when I get there…xoxoxoxo Kimberly.
I always think about the days we spent together working around the house and riding on the tractor. I thank God for the time spent with you and Maw-Maw, a true blessing and honor that not everyone has. I really am grateful for all that you taught me and all of your grandchildren. For many of us, you were the father we never had. I will always honor and cherish my memories with you and Maw-Maw; the only thing a man truly possesses and for that I really am a rich man…. I love you, Paw-Paw… Tell Maw-Maw Hi and I love her….. Jamie.
From all of your grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren, thank you for the coffee milk, tractor rides and “Champ”. You will be forever in our hearts and we will always love our Paw-Paw “Hoochie”!
Thank you for your service to our country, for the sake of all your fellow mankind and your future family. You are our Hero!
