    Lord has called you home. You and Grandma Molly are together again like peanut butter and jelly. There are so many things I will never forget, visiting you at the barbershop, fish fry, you and Grandma making crafts or when you gave me a shirt and tie and took me to church. When you taught me how to float on my back when I got to tired swimming, you also taught me the Lord would keep me above water when I have the Lord in my heart. The Lord is in my heart right next you Grandpa. Love you Grandpa
