I loved you so much pawpaw. You will be missed. I can’t believe you’re actually gone, it still doesn’t even seem real. I’m glad that you’re not suffering anymore , at least. I cry every time I see “smart food” popcorn because it reminds me of the joke you’d always make when I was eating them, “you’re eating smart food to make yourself smart” I wish you could’ve met weslee but I’m so happy that I have memories of you with Harlee and averee, they will always remember you from the stories we tell. Rest easy pawpaw, give aunt Tina a hug for us.

Junior you will be greatly missed and you were a Dad to many including myself. You always put others first and had a heart bigger than the universe. My best childhood memories were having you as my softball coach and as a second Dad. Momma Jean my heart is breaking for you, just know I am here if you ever need to talk.
My sincere condolences to you and the family. Sending prayers and lots of love to everyone.
Rest easy, until we meet again.
