I am sorry I could not attend the funeral services for PopPop, I have many memories of his kindness and generosity. He was a great father-in-law.

Pop-Pop, I finally overcame my aversion to seafood. But I still won't eat my pizza crusts. I'll miss eating mint chocolate chip ice cream with you and talking about the farm. Thank you for the last 37 years of memories: Christmas Tree hunts, Easter Brunch, Craw-dading, Florida summers, Cider pressing, leaf raking, roast beef-carving, buckwheat pancakes on the BlueRidge, swimming holes, respect for the flag and "No shoes on the couch!" You will be missed in a Grand way. You will...

Dear Poppop,
Thank you for all the memories...tractor rides, hay rides, getting Christmas trees, feeding the cows, bailing hay and having the coolest barn. I will miss you.
Love, your oldest grandchild...Dorothy

I am so grateful that I got to spend the last week of your life with you. You have left my sisters and I with so many wonderful memories; tractor rides, getting Christmas trees, feeding the cows and giving us a pony named Hillbillie.
I will miss you and always love you.
Love, your oldest grandchild...

Sonny, Bob, Susie & Allen
