Papaw, I will miss you every day for the rest of my life. You make up so much of who I am and I am forever awaiting the day I can wrap my arms around you again. The boat rides, building make-shift things for me to experiment and play with outside as a kid, hiking the woods with me and Mckayla, being there for every big moment in my life, and providing a safe, loving home when I needed it. The kids miss their great-papaw so much and have been helping me make a photo board for you. Jack said he will see you again in Heaven one day. I love you forever.
