"I LOVE YOU!!! Myrt"

This tribute was added by Peggy Cranford on 26th December 2016

"Hello Darlin', Well Christmas has come and gone. It was a busy couple of days but the only thing missing was YOU. Thanks for coming everyday to say you were still with me. It means the world to me. Thanks for helping the boys cook that ham. They did a good job; it was very tasty. The whole family was together and I think everyone had a great time. Of course the kids got way too many toys but they are only little for a few years. I got Pa's Place cleaned and raked up and you were really decorated for Christmas too. Hope you liked it. You will always be foremost in my mind and heart. I still see the sadness in the girls eyes when Christmas comes because they miss you not being here holding them on your lap. YOU were OUR WHOLE LIFE! We'll never forget that we loved the GREATEST MAN EVER!!!  December 22nd would have been our 50th year together unfortunately we weren't able to share it here on earth but I know you were here in my heart. YOU WILL FOREVER  BE MY ALWAYS. I LOVE YOU, HONEY, Myrt"

"Merry Christmas Daddy!!!  It has been a busy week around here.  Edward, Angie & Ellie have been here.  Little Miss Ellie has kept all of us on our toes.  She is so adorable!!!  We took her to Callaway tonight to see the Christmas lights.  She loved them just like her Grandma.  You would absolutely love her to death Daddy.  She is so beautiful and so, so precious.     Santa brought her a little 4-wheeler and lots & lots of other stuff for Christmas.  She has stolen my heart but a big part of it still aches for you.  I miss you so very much and the holidays just aren't the same.  Thinking of you and missing you every single day that goes by.  Merry Christmas Daddy!!!  I love you today, tomorrow and always."

"I miss you more than I thought humanly possible to miss someone. I'm the luckiest girl in the world to have been loved by you. I'm so thankful Sarah and angel always shared you with me. You are so much more than an uncle, you are my daddy. You taught me so much in life. I miss you terribly. I wanted to say Merry Christmas and thank you for being with me in my car. I felt your hands on my shoulder holding me against that seat,I haven't told anyone about it because they will assume I was crazy. I knew it was you and I thought I was going to be with you and granny that day.  But just like always, you were protecting me. Thank you. I sure wish I could take aunt Peggy's pain away but knowing how much I miss you, I know it doesn't compare to the ache in her heart. Tell granny I love her. I love you! Always have and always will. Merry Christmas."

Things are so busy here and I don't seem to be able to keep up; too much work for one person and me being a girl; well, that says it all.  The family is going through lots of trials and we really need to sit on your lap and listen to your wisdom to help us get through. You have always been there to listen and come up with the right thing that would makes all things better. Spread your arms wide open for our daughter Wendy; she really needs you NOW!!!. I will never be able to fill your shoes (but I wish your shoes were still under my bed). Miss you every day. I don't believe I would be able to make it if you didn't come and give me encouragement. Miss your pretty face and your sweet and funny comments everyday. Hope to see you in my dreams again soon. Love, Myrt"

"Hey pops

It's tater here. I got my drivers license today. You were the first person I wanted to tell but of course mom had to post it on that dang Facebook first. Lol. You always taught the kids how to drive and I wasn't old enough but I did it pa. I didn't get as high of a grade as I would've liked but I still passed lol. Well anyway I'll talk to you later. I just wanted to let you know that tater passed and that you might have some more visitors in Heaven. I wanted to give you and God and heads up on the increase in dead people. See you soon. I miss you everyday. I love you.

"Happy Fourth of July my Darlin, Damn firecrackers are going off everywhere; no way to go to sleep until midnight. Guess you got a great seat. Sit back and enjoy them. I miss you as always.Things will never come close to being the same without you and I will never adjust to not having you here with me. I still talk to you daily and I always will. Hard for me to keep my BIG mouth shut after 46 years, 8 months, plus the almost three long years is has been since you left. This December would be our 50th year. Guess the Ol' LORD decided you needed an early check out ; thinking you might be getting cauliflower ears. You wouldn't recognize me away now for all the wrinkles.; but the twinkle in my eyes for you, will always be a dead give away. I love you more than l can ever say. Can't wait until we are together again. Keep coming to me in my dreams; that's what get me through. Love, Your Myrt"

You know Wendy is our little girl and she can't do this by herself and she has no one else. Please send him sign that will wake him up.

Just a note to let you know I'm thinking about you.
Today is Wendy's birthday if you wanted to drop in and see her. She could really use the support; she been running on overload for awhile now. She is still " our" little girl. She misses you almost as much as I do.
That scooter is a hard worker. He worked along side of me all day yesterday. I believe he has a little tree man in him and he loves BIG trucks. He is so precious. Got your bike back home. You ready for a ride now! I love you and miss you everyday. I wish you were here so we could have a good long talk over a nice hot cup of coffee. Always thinking of you, my love. Myrt"

"Hello Darlin', Just sitting here thinking about how much I love you and how much I miss you......

Love is the greatest force that puts two hearts together beating as one;
that love can never be separated, even by death.
My heart still beats for you and it aches while you are away. The memories of "our" hearts beating as one is the only thing that keeps my heart beating today.  But when the time come and my heart beats no more that is when "our" heart will once again beat as one.

I love you with my whole heart.
Myrt"

"Hey papa it's Tater here ( your favorite)! I'm in the car with dad and we were passing by a field and they had goat grass. I soon realized i hadn't eaten any since you left. I guess you always pointed that stuff out to me. I sure do miss you pops. I rode Brant on your chair the other day and told him all the stories of me and you riding. My favorite was when we were going up to the field and I was sitting in your lap. We went over the hole that lines up with the chicken coop and I fell off the chair. We couldn't stop laughing. I miss your laugh pa. I miss your excitement when I would make some new "invention". I don't make stuff like I used to anymore. Well I won't take up anymore of your time. Dad and I got to run to Home Depot. We'll get you something while we're there. We love you.

Ps- tell nana I said I love her and miss her too. Dad and I stopped by the other day to check on her and papa Sherman. Thanks."

I know you have to help me get things done. I miss not having to follow you around outside to see what you were up too and see if you needed my help. I need your help. At least we had each other. It's much harder now that you've not here to help me and not nearly as much fun. Thanks for always putting up with me. I wish you would have taught me to drive the tractor. So many things I can't do. Know that I Love You and Miss you Everyday. Myrt"

I will always miss you but I know today was one of your favorite holidays simply because of the Hot Chocolate Cake!!!.(Fat Man's Favorite, as you used to say) Scooter and I had a piece for you this morning right out of the oven. Yummy! What do you think about that Scooter? He is a joy and he wants to do everything everyone else is doing. Don't think he will be a baby long. He helped decorate for Easter, yesterday. Guess he'll be the only one to hunt eggs this years; I really enjoyed coloring the eggs with him last year; those blue fingers were precious. I LOVE YOU, FOREVER. Myrt"
