I want to say good bye to my Paw Paw and thank him for all the fun times we had together – especially when I was young. I use to spend my summers with him and Maw Maw and he would take me golfing, to the walking boards and anywhere I wanted to go. I loved him so much and have missed him dearly since he moved to Arizona. Paw Paw I know you are up there with my dad – give him a kiss for us and please know that I loved you very much.

Dear Family, Mr. Sipple is in the best possible place to be, in God’s memory. Hopefully, we who never got to know him personally will see him in the New Paradise Earth soon to come (Acts 24:15). My sincerest sympathy to you.
