I love you papaw. I will miss you, yet I know you would want us to continue on in our lives…sticking together as a family. I am really going to miss your warm hugs, twinkling eyes, and genuine love for your family. Right now, life is full of “If only…” There are so many things I wish I would have said and done…Now that you are gone, it makes me sad that I never got to do all that I wished to do.
“Death leaves a heartache no one [but God] can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.” ~From a headstone in Ireland
“There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go.” ~Author Unknown
