In Memory of Pawpaw.


Baby's Pawpaw died today of cancer. He was 73. Baby really liked him - he always seemed to know when Pawpaw was going to tease him.

He was a ham. When Pawpaw would take his daily vitamins he would jokingly deal them out and say, "One for you, one for you...." He loved to turn lights on when we read and would say, "Better, one? Better, two?" like the optometrist. We went to visit a few weeks ago when he started feeling really sick and he said, "Randy is a good son and you are a good daughter-in-law." I had a feeling that was the last time we would see each other. It was.

We're going to miss you, Pawpaw. We love you.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. There are no words adequate. I am praying the the comfort only God can bring, as He wraps you in his loving arms.

Your tribute to James is beautiful. I know you will treasure the family portrait of Erik PawPaw and Granny. It is a wonderful picture.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Love,
Mom
