    I’m so thankful you were in my life. I’m sure missing my 9 pm calls, jiggling (what you called google) stuff for you, the History lessons, fishing stories, war stories, and learning about what great grandma and grandpa went though. I’ve learned a lot of family history through you too. You were such a blessing to me this past 6 years, and we both kept each other going through loosing other loved ones. Thank you for being there.

    Grandpa, thank you for being in my life for so many years. We fished, we camped, we hauled butt in that boat, we played cards, we ate and we laughed. Thanks for putting up with all the animals too, the birds, dogs and horses, I’ll never forget the night that Stogie was born. The smell of fresh coffee will remind me of you and Grandma forever. I’ll always be your “Sugar Babe”. Rest now, you earned it. Love you.
