So sorry to hear of your dads passing my thoughts are with you. I remember your dad picking on my sister about her red hair and how he was going to cut it all off. She would scream everytime and he would have the biggest smile on his face. I also remember the many times i played at the house. God bless you all.

I met you all when I came to babysit, omg..so many years have passed everyone has scattered all over. Shelly and I were reminiscing about when you were younger and played together.. we were sorry to hear Jim had passed. I didn't realize they were back in the area.. just remember all the fun times and funny ones as he was so full of the dickens. He loved each of you and was always proud of you. Keep the memories of him close to your hearts you will probably even giggle...he will be forever with you.

It's hard to find the words to explain what my Grandpa meant to me. To say "I will miss you" just doesn't seem like enough.
