It is hard to believe that it has been 12 yrs since you had left us. I still can remember the visit Ma and I had when you were still in the hospital. We did have a happy time. Miss you much. There has been many more from our family that have joined you. (Dad, Paul, Ma, Joan) I know Jack misses his hunting partner. He talks a lot about those hunting stories often. Love ya.

Today as I sit here looking at your picture I am reminded of the last holiday we spent together as a family and I so long to have those days back again with a better understanding of how blessed we truly were. 12 years seems like yesterday..... Love you and miss you. Lora Lee

DEAR BUDDY: WE MOVED OUT OF OUR OXFORD HOME OF 20 YEARS THIS JUNE OF 2015. I WAS VERY TIRED OF BEING A 20 HOUR DRIVE AWAY FROM THE CHILDREN. WE'RE NOW ONLY AN 8 HOUR DRIVE FROM THEM WHICH IS TONS BETTER. I WENT DEER HUNTING LAST YEAR WITH OUR YOUTH PASTOR WHO HELPED ME TREMENDOUSLY. I TOOK A COUPLE OF SHOTS LONG AGO WITH YOUR CONVENTIAL BOW. AFTER WATCHING THE ARROW SLOWLY DISAPPEAR I SAID I'D NEVER GO HUNTING WITH A BOW. HOWEVER, I HAD TO EAT MY WORDS AS I WENT BOW HUNTING WITH MY NEW 175 POUND PULL. I THINK THE THINGS IS WORSE THAN A GUN! I STILL TALK TO CARYN ABOUT YOU VERY OFTEN. I'M THANKFUL HAT GOD HAS ALLOWED ME TO LIVE AS LONG AS HE HAS. ONE OF THESE DAYS I'LL HAVE TONS OF THINGS TO CHAT WITH YOU ABOUT AND AM SURELY LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. MISS YOU TONS, AND SORRY YOU WOULDN'T LISTEN TO ME ABOUT YOUR SMOKING!

Hello Dad, Today marks 11 years that you’ve been gone and I’m sorry we never got a chance to talk or to tell you how much I love you and even though your absent in body I know your spirit lives on in all of the people that loved you. God had prepared a room for you as he is doing for me and I will rejoice in seeing you again. I thank my God for all my remembrance of you, Philippians 1:3. Ecclesiastes 3:1-22 ESV For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; ... Until we meet again….love you, Lora Lee

Happy birthday to the best grandpa a grand child could have asked for. Every memory I have of you was filled with laughter and good memories. Never a dull moment. Except that one time Ben couldn't get me to sleep remember? Haha. Always remember that. Wish we could have had more time to cherish more time to spend more lessons learned from you sing more hootie and the blowfish at the top of our lungs driving to get autum a happy meal. More birthdays celebrated together. Memories are all we have left and I'll never let go of those. You left so suddenly never had the chance to formally say good bye to someone I'll always admire to be. Love you, miss you always and forever.

Dear Buddy Happy Birthday - miss you - I am sure that you are happy to have MA in heaven with you - she was looking forward to being with you all - Dad, Aunt Lola, Paul, her Mother and Father too. I am getting ready to retire - this is something that you were not able to do - but you are completly retired from the things of this Earth and are in heaven and being in the presence of our LORD
