Daddy, oh how I miss you so much. Not only was you my dad but also my friend & pal. You have touched so many lives with your humungous heart. You have done your work on earth in 10 fold or more by helping anyone & everyone you could. I know I could never walk in your shoes but you taught me to try & try I will. I don't know how I can go on in this life without you but I will do my best & work hard to make you proud. Please be waiting for me when I get there because I can't wait to hug your neck again. Thank you for being the best dad a gal could ask for. I look forward to seeing you, mom, Lora, & G'ma Rose! Until then, keep our Good Lord watching over your family & friends. Kisses & hugs daddy!

This is my Pappy. I love him. I miss him. We watched political shows together, went to St. Louis, and flea markets. He taught me how to haggle and to go to bed at a reasonable time. He bought my winter coats as a child and was there for anyone who needed help.
