    I love and miss him so much! I’ve got a lot of fond memories but the best we’re going fishing with him as a kid at long branch lake in Macon, MO….we would always stop at Hardee’s on our way for breakfast…..he even taught me how to clean them. I will cherish our last visit forever when he told me how proud he was of me and when he hugged me good-bye and said he never wanted to let me go….I never did….your in my heart forever daddy.

  2. Grandpa was the best guy I could ever ask for going to be hard just least there no more suffering and no more pain for him, but as time passes bye we will all be with our loved one and that day will be a blessing I send my prayers to the rest of the family wish we all could be together for times like these but most of us live far and down yonder love all of you and all ways thanking about you all.

    grandpa might be gone but he will never be forgotten love you

  3. Love you grandpa, I never did join the boy scouts like you wanted, but I did end up enjoying fishing and enjoying the outside more all because of you, all the phone calls and time we spent when I would visit you in Arizona. I will forever look up to you, rest in peace.
