You helped me conquer swimming out to the raft, mastering all of the diving boards, and realizing that there really was sand at the bottom of the lake.

May you rest in peace with family that has gone before you to prepare for your entrance into Heaven. May you also rest in the peace of knowing you were the best husband, father and grandfather, as GOD intended. The lessons, morals and love you taught them will be carried on through the generations and your little ways of doing things will show in them. You did your job and did it well!! You were loved beyond measure and will be missed forever.
Love and condolence to you Jessica, Jake and all the grandbabies!!
You are in my thoughts and prayers!!

I will always remember the time that you stopped by my house when I was taking care of Gram. You rolled up in the tour bus; and, golly, everyone thought that we knew someone famous. Gram sure had fun. She talked about that long after you had left. Be at peace now and know that
