Pops, I miss you so much, you where always there for me, anything I needed you got it for me, anytime I needed someone to talk to I could talk to you, any time something was going on you knew how to comfort me and cheer me up!! Pops I know your in heaven looking down on me, on us all,you are an inspiration to me and I know one day I'll see you again!!
Bubba, you were always dear to me and I remember well our first Cub Scout skit in the old Bayview School, you were all so cute as the made scientists and the janitors and all of the other things that we did over the years, when we made the paper mache space helmets, went to the zoo, to the boy scout exhibition and all of the other many fun things that we did. I still have the old record book with dues and achievements, Debra was suppposed to take it to you but never did. My heart goes out to you and yours, but will be there to say goodbye for the last time. I loved yo u then and I love you now, your second Mom, Jean.
My sincere condolences go out to the family at this time. May the God of all comfort give you the peace that surpasses all thought and mental powers during this difficult time. (Philippians 4:6,7) I hope you can also find comfort in something that helps me at Psalm 146:5,9: "Happy is the one...whose hope is in Jehovah his God...The fatherless boy and the widow he relieves." Right now God has such loving concern for you. I hope that these thoughts give you a measure of comfort.
