For to me, to live is Christ,
and to die is gain.

For I am hard pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. Philippians 1:21:23

Well just a note to let you know it has never been the same since you left this earth. You would be so proud of your great grandsons all of them.
Drake has graduated and is now working at Delta Downs and doing a fantastic job, all of the managers just love him, he is still full of personality and wit.
Mason is graduating this year with Honors he is very smart and full of energy and excitement. This one is going to go very far in life I can only imagine what he will achieve in his lifetime.. So handsome looks a lot like you and just like Nick.
Dillon is so so intelligent it just amazes me.. this one is on his way to be a Flight Medic. Go figure that and he is so talented not only with sports, you should hear him play the piano and guitar.. Proud Nana here and you would be too.
Dawson is headed for the stage.. he is going to the best college in Dallas - Dallas Baptist University.. |he already has a contract with CLife Community Church he is one of the youth music ministers. He has written and recorded a song of his own and it will hit ITunes for purchase in a couple of weeks.. Such a joy and blessing to be around.. Love all of my grandsons and you would too. Chris and Nick are doing well also. As for me.. Well you know the story of my life..struggle, pray get up and do it again. I am still working so thank God for that. Sure do miss talking to you every day.
Brenda is not well, the Alzheimer's is kicking her in the behind. Too bad that Her sisters and Des have made so many issues and kept Bubba, me and Rhonda away form her. So sad I have been talking to her lately..she isn't sure who I am though.. my heart breaks for Bubba he not only lost you he lost her through the hatefulness of his sister and Brenda's sisters. They will pay some day. Enough of that .. Wish you could visit sometime.. If you get to see Peter the apostle tell him hello for me.. Ask God to keep all of us safe and healthy.. Love you always - Your daughter - Smiles and Hugs. Love you , Renee

Daddy, today is not a day I want to celebrate but a day I want to recognize your life. After seven years there's not a day that passes without a thought of you. It must be great in Heaven, being in serenity and living in peace. Things are rough at times down here on earth but I feel your love and draw on your strength. I love you eternally, until we meet again. Desiree

Thinking of you today and missing you terribly. Hard to believe 5 years has passed since I was able to hug you tightly, tell you I love you and let you go to your eternal resting place filled with much peace, joy and happiness. I pray that you and Mother will always watch out for my children and grandchildren. They are very blessed to have two loving "guardian angels" always protecting from harm. Daddy, I know you are so happy to see the relationship your daughters are building finally after all these years. All three of us have missed out over the years, but no looking back, only forward. I love my big sister and baby sister will all my heart and pray peace, happiness and love full their lives and of course the same for Bubba. Be happy Daddy and know that "it is well with my soul" and until we meet again you will always be in my thoughts. Bobby thinks of you often and says, "your Daddy would laugh" if he saw me now. We are very happy Daddy, Bobby is a wonderful husband, father and the best grandfather ever! I thank God for blessing us both with a strong marriage with lots of love. Please give Mom the biggest hug ever and tell her how much I miss and love her. She truly was the best Mother ever and Memaw!!! Please continue watching over my babies; big and small. Bunches and more bunches of love! Rest in peace my sweet Father!!!

Daddy, I miss you so much. There's not a day that passes that I don't think about you. I know Rhonda has already talked with you today and shared the commitment your daughter's have to be close to each other and me to their kids and grandkids. It's been wonderful spending time with them and Aryn is always in tow. Aryn, what a jewel, you would be so proud. She is a funny girl and talks about you all the time. Renee and I are both doing better and our lives are improving daily. I know you have a hand in that and I thank you. Please continue to look over your kids, grandkids, great grandkids and extended family. Daddy, please help me have the strength and courage to look after mom. Praying for patience and understanding. I'm sorry I didn't engage more when she started getting sick and help you out more. You were/are the best daddy a girl could ask for. I love you so very much. I know you are happy and in a wonderful place and will greet me when I get to heaven. Thanks for all of the lessons and laughs and beautiful memories. I love you now and for eternity. Desiree

Dear Pawpaw. Yesterday would have been your 50th anniversary with Mammaw. She misses you a lot, I do too. I wish nothing more than to see you again. I think about you all the time. Daddy stocked up on boxes of Nilla wafers, just like you used to eat. I'm happy you're in a good place. Tell everyone else hello. I love you so much.

My dearest Pawpaw,

I'm sorry I missed writing while it was your birthday, but there wasn't a moment that day where you weren't on my mind and in my heart. I miss you sooo much. I'm starting high school this year. I wish you could be with me. Madison's gonna graduate this year. Aryn too. I miss you.

Hi Daddy. I sure do miss you...I mean I really miss you. There is not a day that has passed that I do not think of you. It has been just over five months since you died and it feels like forever. Your love is in my heart. You are loved today and always. Des
Posted by Rhonda Harrrington on March 1, 2011
It has been a week today since you left us and it is still so hard to believe you are no longer here. No more calls from you saying; "I just called to tell you I love you!" And I would always say, "I love you too Daddy!" The only thing that brings peace to my heart now is knowing that you are no longer suffering in anyway. Until we meet again remember I LOVE YOU DADDY! Rhonda

Dear Luke,

I feel your loss, as I am also mourning my sister's passing only a few weeks ago. May we rest in knowing that they are beholding the presence of the Most High God.

May God's peace and comfort fill the entire family, in Christ Jesus,

Thanks to everyone who has sent their love,prayers and support to my family. My father was my hero, there was literally nothing he could not do. My fathers love for his family is bigger than Texas. His love for his friends was just as great. He always loved attention and I know he is still. I am lost without him but know his lessons, his love and spirit will guide me. I love you Daddy.
Posted by Jim Cavazos on February 24, 2011
Luke was in my eyes one of the best men I ever met. Luke would give you his last cent and never regret it. Over the years Luke and I became very close even though we lived many miles apart.
Thinking back I have many stories about the times Luke and I spent together. As we would part Luke would always give me a Great Big Hug and say I Love You Brother.
Well I Love You Brother

I met Luke and Brenda many years ago working in Texas. I have always remembered what loving people both Brenda and Luke were. Luke and his humor will be missed. He loved his family so much and always talked about you all.

Desiree and Luke - I did not have the pleasure of knowing your dad but I do know great kids come from great parents.  You are lucky to have been blessed with a great dad. 

Carry your memories close...he will always be near.
