Five years seems like just yesterday. Have been thinking of you all week long. We've gotten some home videos and never thought I'd enjoy watching your rabbit hunting videos, but I do.

I still remember that morning like it was yesterday. coming through wisner early that Sunday morning and there was PUTT running radar and i remember getting home and mom (amaryllis) saying something was going on in Wisner. PUTT was more than an officer he was a friend to me and I wish he could have met my wife. Kelly and I now live in Iowa but not a day goes by that I dont think of PUTT or Roy everytime they tell on the Omaha, NE news that and officer was wounded

I wish you could see Dana's baby. A very wise older lady I teach with told me when Jackson was born that when grandchildren are born that it seems as if our life is made into a perfect circle. She went on to say that even when the grandparents pass on, a part of them will continue to live on through their grandchildren.

When I look at Jackson, I understand what she means, but I know that it goes deeper than that. He has some striking Linder features that stem from you, his great grandfather-especially that chin and his mouth area. Wish you were here to enjoy him with us...

Hey Papaw,our whole family really misses you.I thought about you in school all day.Today at recess,I played football all day with my friends.At first recess,I missed every pass I got thrown to.At second recess,there is this boy named Brandon Chapman.He threw about every pass to me.I caught every one except for "2".I almost missed everything I caught.There is this other boy named Thomas Ausberry.He thinks he is the smartest person in the world,and the strongest.He is strong,but last Tuesday,I pushed him on the ground while we were playing football because he kept on messing around with me.I'll write to you later.

The day of the year we all have come to dread is here again. It's hard not to relive that day over and over in my head when this day is here. How our lives have changed since you've been gone! No one can ever really be the same again, but we can at least reflect back to many good times together. There will be a gathering tomorrow morning in Wisner for a dedication of a park in your memory. So many who love you and miss you will be there to honor you! You deserve it and so much more. What I'd give to hear your deep, gruff voice just one more time! We miss you.

Hi papaw,I can't stop thinking about you.A few weeks ago somebody named Mr. Don Barton sang a song and it made Byron cry.I also stayed up one night just crying and thinking about you.I miss you and I can't wait to see you when I get up there. Bye now

Hey Papaw. I was just sitting at work thinking about you. I miss you and can't wait to see you again. Since you died, there's been a void in my heart that I think only you could fill. I love you so much.
