Hi daddy
Happy birthday today.
We all miss you very much.
I know you came to get mommy when it was her turn.
She said she saw you and thought it was you.
You must look different but still the same..
I know we all get a new body and a new name.
When Beth said mom was writing in the air and said his soul name is Walter..I knew it was you.
She found Ruby too. Not sure if she found Rashell or her mommy..but I am sure she did eventually.
You got the honors of showing her around.
I bet it is more beautiful than my mind can actually imagine.
You are an amazing man. You were a great father to me.
It must have been hard to have that many children at once and try to financially care for us.
We were good with what we received.
Mom was the most creative and hard working and loving kind generous mom we could ever had.. We miss you and mom and Ruby and Rashell and Rick so very much.
Have a very happy heavenly birthday.
Till we meet again.
Love you very much
Eata Jean.

   Oh Dad , I’ve missed you So much, and Now mom is there with you in heaven. And she has left us here on earth on December 2 2019.   It was hard losing you but missing mom is killing me.  I don’t know why I feel I hurt more.  Maybe this is the answer to the question mom asked me.  Wonder what it would be like if I left first ,and you Dad was still here.  Well I’m finding the answer. The grief would have been harder for dad to deal with. As he loved you so much Mum.   I’m glad you found each other at the pearly gates.   Till we all meet again.  
    All my love Linda.

Well it’s been a long time since you have left us.  We celebrated your Birthday.  Tonia baked a chocolate cake. I made a butterscotch pie Bill did the pre test taste for ya. Lol. Said you would approve.  Mom misses you dearly. She’s doing well but very tired. And weak.  Sorry i don’t write much.  You would be 87 now. Unbelievable.   things have changed some. You have a new great grandson born in Kentucky.  He’s a cutie.  Sure do miss you.   And love you so much.  Thanks for everything and all the memories.    Love Linda.

Family

Shared by Rita Jolly on April 23, 2016

Family was very important to my dad.

He has a huge one.That's for sure.

Wayne was a funny man.He sure did love to irritate my mom.

He loved to give whisker runs and put in a chew and give you a kiss.He loved the girls..all girls .He was harmless .Mom was never jealous.

This is the last family picture that we took before he continued his journey with God.

Ruby was sick so she didn't make it in the picture.

He was very well loved by many

And He loves all of us too.

I always said I was his favorite but he really had no favorite..

We all truly were his favorites.

We love you and miss you daddy.
