Pa, we are nearing the 28th year that you were taken from us. As I sit here today and look across the field at your house, I can’t help to be sad. I miss you so much and I often find myself asking you for advise. Times have really been tough for me this year, but I always remember my family bond and that I can overcome anything that’s thrown at me. Your great grandson whom you never got to meet has given you a great-great grandson. He will be 1 also this month. A lot of Birthdays in Oct. Mine, Casey, Janet, and now Knox. We are all so blessed to have had the time we had with you. Even tho my time was only 16 years, I’m just so thankful you taught me the love and respect I have today. Mimmie has kept the family together and I can only pray after she is gone we all stay close and together. Crystal has always been the mother hen of getting things together (cause she is the oldest grandchild lol) and I’m glad she does. Anyways I was just sitting here looking at all you built over the years and wanted to write you. I miss you and love you Pa, more than you know. I will always keep your name alive and us grandkids, great grandkids and now great great grandkids will do our best to keep Brian Woodcock in jail. May you Rest In Peace and see ya on the other side.

2nd oldest grandchild
