Growing up my dad always used to say “I’ve only known three ‘real’ men in my life. My father, my grandfather and Billy Ray Robinson.” It wasn’t until I was older that I ever completely understood that. I never grew up thinking that I didn’t have a grandfather even though my paternal and maternal grandfathers had passed. Papaw Bill & Mamaw Linda showed me enough love to last a lifetime. He was the greatest grandfather God could have ever given me. Papaw, thank you for loving me as if I were your own and for showing me what a true christian man really is. Your love for all of us and your love for Mamaw was nothing short of amazing. I’ll carry all of my memories with me forever. You truly were one of the best men I’ll ever know. So, go get some rest Papaw… walk the streets of gold and we’ll see you soon!
