Always my Daddy... I love you...

Remembering Mr. James, when he would be waiting in The Country House parking lot for Lydia to get off work. I would wave to him as I left and sometime give him a cupcake or cookie left over from our goodies.,he would smile.

My grandfather was the best man I ever knew!! He knew how to get you to smile and he was always there's for me and my brother. I love him like a father. And he will always be in my heart.

sure gonna miss ya & our "special" times together(watching westerns & cleaning the pool,no ruff housing, remember?)Never knew anyone like ya, you were my second dad. We'll see each other again & ya big lug you better have a big fluffy cloud for me to land on or we're gonna have words.

So sorry for your loss. We are praying for strength for all of you in this time of sorrow. Your faith in the Lord will see you thru and your church family will be here for you. Hold on to knowing you will see him again in Heaven. Sending you our love and prayers.

Lydia and kids,
