Pawpaw on your birthday we made cookies and sent balloons up to Heaven from Dad, your great-grand babies, and I. Mawmaw Ruth wanted me to do that for you and the babies. So I did. Bubby spoke about you a lot and was very happy to help bake the cookies. I love you more than I could ever put into words. I think about each and everyday. I miss voice and the way you talk. I miss the shine in your eyes when you saw your family. Love poured from your eyes and your smiles. I love you and you will never ever be forgotten.

I hope your days are good and the fishing is better where your at now.I have missed, laughed, cried and thought about you a lot over this last year.... the hole that was left after you went on is still there and will never be filled for there is nothing that could even compare to your meaning in my life! Happy birthday paw paw....

I love and miss you so much Pawpaw Ernie. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you or think I haven't spoke to my Pawpaw in a long time and go to the phone to call you to only realize you're not here with us anymore. I couldn't have picked a better grandfather. I'm so blessed to have had you for my pawpaw. I loved our jokes and pranks, but what I will miss most is the way you said I love you with your eyes and smile. I wish we had more time together, but I am thankful for the times we got to share. I also love when my babies talk about you and I share my wonderful memories of you with them. In my opinion other than my dad you were one of the greatest men in my life. You had a great impact on my life. I love you Pawpaw and I will never forget you. Pawpaw, Daddy misses you too! You was such a great man and Pawpaw! Love Always, Nicole

I still get confused from time to time if I should miss a grandfather or a dad... see I say this because this man was BOTH to me in so many different ways! He has embedded so many thing into me into my everyday life like the love for the outdoor and working with wood.. and so many more too many to name :) I miss him so much and had so much more to learn from him and I know he would have tough me everything he knew because thats the man he was!.. he gave most of his life to work and to anyone and everyone that needed his help and time and love :) I know he is in me and walks beside me as I walk the same paths he walked around the old home place and I can almost hear him say no not that way! Hear try it this way as im workin in his ol work building and around the house :) I miss his giggles and smiles as I did something stupid!!! I miss the way the tobacco juice would run down his chin as he would get worked up about something :) I could go on and on and on but I must leave some thing's mine and his lil well ya know some thing ya just dont tell ;-) I love you paw paw and Ill see ya when spring gets here because we cant let that grass get away from us!!!
