    Dear Sheryl and Family

    Time passes so quickly and leaves us with such sharp grief and yet heartfelt memories of those gone before us. Emily and Erica deeply loved their Memaw and Pawpaw. Fond childhood memories will always be keenly engraved in their hearts. Fishing, eating ice-cream , playing at that big desk and forever spinning around in the recliner, playing with PeeWee and eating Memaws good cooking!!
    Jim, you always walked tall, now fly high! You will always be remembered and missed.
