    You and grandpa gave me the best childhood any kid could ask for. You raised me since birth and and I was always proud to be called your son. I will miss all of our adventures. Our trips to point Marion, going to secondhand stores, taking you to Food Lion, watching you throw the keys down to Lilly, always calling to ask how Michael is doing, watching you play with Carter and Elise, wondering if Christopher is safe and smile and every time Ashley came to stay, knowing how happy you were that Gina and I would carry your legacy and share it with everyone. Most of all I will miss being able to call you and our long talks about your life experiences. We will always love you and grandpa and miss you every day. I know it in my heart and I believe it 100% that you two are together right now catching up on everything that has happened since grandpa passed away.

  • To Debbie and all the family of Wilma(whom I call Grandma)my condolences to you all. This is very hard and she will truly be missed. You are not alone at this difficult time. May God’s love bring you comfort and peace. Just keep the memories you have and she will always be with you. Praying for Love,Comfort and Peace.

    Mom T, it was my honor to know you for 50 years. You and Dad were the finest and kindest people on this earth. I will miss all your posts on Facebook reminiscing about your past. You knew exactly how to put things in perspective, with the wisdom only age can bring. Your family will miss you immensely, as will I. My fondest memory of you is from one of our visits to your home in Allen when you graced us with your yodeling and clogging prowess. I will cherish it always. Now I will look to the heavens to find you, where you dwell with all our loved ones, in the kingdom of the Lord. I love you Mom.
