R.I.P. Grandpa. Thank you for giving me hope and comforting me when i was sad. I know you will always be proud of me no matter what I do in my life. You told me 3 days before you died that you love me no matter what. I wish I could say I love you to you one last time. You didn't deserve this. Not at all.

Rest in Peace papaw, You were a great man and anyone who had the pleasure knowing you has a huge hole in their hearts now that you're gone. I'll never forget some of your stories, like about how you gave the name "Rocky top" to your dog and how to spell Mississippi....
