In Memory

Dear Papaw,

Simply put: I can't believe you are gone. I can't believe that I haven't seen you in over a year and the next time I do, we will be laying you to rest. 

If I had the chance to spend some time with you before you passed, I would tell you how much I love you. How much you mean to me. Before Daddy came into my life, you were the best father figure a girl could wish for. Thank you for loving me so much.

I will forever carry your memory in my heart. I will always cherish the time we spent together when I was little. I can promise you that Connor will grow up knowing about my Papaw, his Grand Papaw. He will know what a good heart you had and that you loved his Mommy; that I was your favorite.

Papaw, I know, without a doubt, you are in Heaven watching over us. You are now with your siblings and your loving parents. I hope you get to spend lots of time with Mamaw Bernice and Papaw Bill. They are good people, you will like them.

I am comforted in knowing you are healthy again. You no longer have heart problems and can move about with total grace. As much as we will mourn for you, I know that you are with our Heavenly Father.

I will see you again. Until then, shine your love down on us.

Love,
Baby
