He treated me like I was his granddaughter. He meant everything to me and always will. I hate the way he got treated when he got sick and got put away. I will always love this man and he will always be in my heart. I just wish I could have said gooodbye to you one more time or that I will always be here for you. I will always have our memories of fishin and huntin. And tearing down the double wide how much fun we had!!! Rest easy worm I know you are here with me watching over me. I hope I’m making you proud. Rest easy my friend until we meet again!💔
