I’m not sure on what ,or how to say anything. Regardless I hear stories and memories of joy and happiness that you spread amoungst not only family but the community. I never got the pleasure to actually know you papa. I was only two and have no memories of you. with everything being said; I hope that one day I can meet and talk to you. Not as a baby that you remember but as a man you never got to see me grow into. now memaw is there with you after many years of waiting. I miss her so much but I’m so glad that she can see the man she loved forever and always never swaying her loyalty to you even after 20+ years of your passing. I hope y’all are swell and happy. You both deserve it! One day I wanna see y’all both!! Not soon but soon enough just gotta wait a lil while and watch over everyone till the time has come. When that day comes I wanna learn everything I can about you papa, and see memaw with her soul mate happy and smiling. I love you both! Just wait papa you’ll get to meet me one day. ~ Logan Ps. Take care of memaw the way I took care of her. She needs you.
