  1. Granddad we will miss you very much. You were such a wonderful influence on all our lives. He had such a gentle heart and loved his family very much. He enjoyed all his grandkids visiting and watching them grow.

    Thank you so much to Casey’s future Father-in-law Pastor Finley Limehouse for agreeing to officiate over the service in Seneca, we really appreciate it.

  2. Daddy,
    I love you so much and I can’t stop crying. I know that you don’t want us to grieve forever, but it is just so hard!!! I love you so much. We ALL love you so much!!! Just knowing that you are with Susan and the rest of your family helps a lot. I won’t be able to see you every Sunday anymore, but I promise to come and visit with you in Seneca and I will make sure to have flowers for you when I visit. You are finally home Daddy!!!
