Dear Jr. You will be really missed around the neighborhood. The black Tahoe and later the grey Camry. The many many things you did for people in our little community here in Twightwee Ohio There was a great celebration in heaven when you got there and reunited with Bert and family. Your back problems are finally over. I will miss you my friend and neighbor. I will always pray for you and your family,and I will see you again one day.

Oh grandpa... I have so much to say. You have been the best grandpa a girl could have. I will never forget all the memories we have made in the past 16 years, you have been my buddy. You and grandma were my everything and now I have the best 2 angels up in heaven. Ever since I was born you have taken care of me and it was a honor being able to take care of you. Thank you for giving me the best laughs ever, when we were together there was never a dull moment. Thank you for being my bestfriend, grandpa and favorite person in the whole world. Thank you grandpa for everything, mom will take care of everybody just like you did... don’t you worry! We will see eachother again, please grandpa and grandma watch over the team:) I love you forever and always!

To my sweet Junie. Thank you for always being there for me my whole life. There are no words to explain the relationship you, grandma and I shared. A piece of my heart went away when you passed but I am so happy for you bc I know how much you missed Grandma. You and I have been there for each other as we grieved for gma each day. We made it through together. Not one single day will go by where we won’t miss you and cry for you. But I can only imagine how precious the reuniting was with you and grandma and all of the other loved ones that have passed through the years. I know you will be watching over me like you always have. I feel a sense of security from that always. Thank you for being you!! The best! I love you dearly! And this is not goodbye this is see you later. I love you always and forever. 💙💙💙
