Grandaddy



Last night my Grandaddy took his last breath. I will remember family lunches at Jordan's and his love for their hot sauce, his love for newsboy hats, his red holiday ensemble, his poodle Candy, his little patio full of the most random items, his stories about Geronimo, him dancing at our wedding, him falling asleep in the arm chair after holiday meals, his love for watching sports on TV, but most of all..... how he became friends with everyone he met.

He was deeply loved and will be greatly missed.

Mandy - I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how special your grandaddy was to you. I remember meeting him in highschool and thinking he was cutest little man ever. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family!

oh Mandy, thank you! those were beautiful words you wrote about your grandaddy! He was a very fine man, and he loved us all very much. I know he is smiling down on us now....probably even making a joke with gma Laura! He thought she was just great. Anyway, moving forward with love in our hearts!
