Dad/Grandpa you have left such a great legacy to your family. You have lived a great life and always tried to do your best by striving to be an incredible and honorable son of your Heavenly Father. Thank you for always being so supportive to each and every one of us. We will miss your stories, your teasing, and your love. We will miss our daily jaunts to get your Diet Coke and bringing you cheeseburgers and fries. We will miss seeing you strut your stuff wearing your stylish cowboy hats, cowboy boots, and leather jackets. And we will miss your gorgeous hair!
We find peace in knowing of the joyous reunion you are having with loved ones in Heaven. We find great comfort in knowing we will see you again.
