Jeremy peacock says:
Grandpa I've had so many things I've wanted to ask you for so many years, and so many things I know you could have taught me. I've always wanted to know what you were like what kind of man you were what your parents and grandparents were like so many questions but the most important thing I've always wanted to tell you was Hello.. and sadly I wont be able to get that chance but from the story's my mother has told me you were a good man and when I reach heaven I know we'll site on a bench, then I'll be able to ask the question that has pondered my mind for so long we'll get to talk & laugh like no tomorrow, until then I love you grandpa.
You're grandson Jeremy.
Brianna Gundrum says:
Pawpaw, you were the best man I've ever met. You were my best friend and I miss you more than words can describe. Thankyou for everything you ever taught me. I truly wish grandpa's never died 💔 I love and miss you more and more each day. I hope heaven is full of big ole pond's to fish in and beautiful Harley's to ride. Rest in peace my handsome pawpaw ❤️
Your peanut ❣️
Tori Gundrum says:
“Pawpaw, I’ll never forget sitting in your lap hugging on your big belly and eating sherbet ice cream with you or the times you took me fishing and tried to throw me and nana out of the boat or me catching more fish than you. I have so many memories of you and the things you taught me like “Get all you want but eat all you get” or going on trips with you and stopping at every Waffle House along the way. I loved spending all my time with you and nana as a child and even though you guys never had much, you always made sure we had everything. I couldn’t imagine a better man in my life and you’ll always be the unrealistic expectations I compare guys to, as there will never be another one like you. Thank you for showing me what a man should be. Take care of Silas for me. ❤️ I love you. “ Tori...
Jennifer McCormick says:
Daddy, it's me again. Today seems to be a rough day. I am missing you so much 😢. I am sitting and thinking about all the memories I have with you like you teaching me how to drive a stick shift and us almost ending up in the pond and us taking the hood off that old car and using it as a sled or how about us all standing on the tiller to till the garden. Even the small things were great like weeding the garden then going to the lake as your way of saying thank you and cutting wood for the woodstove in the winter and me busting my butt on the ice covering the rocks. I miss working on the boats and mommas car with you. I miss cooking with you and listening to your records. I miss everything about you but mostly I miss knowing that you were always going to be there for me no matter what. I wish so much that you were still here with me. You have taught me so much and I wasn't ready to stop learning from you. Daddy, I love you so very very much. You truly were the best man I have ever known and I will never forget the man you were. You took a piece of my heart with you that I will never get back. I know if you were here you would hug me and put one hand on my head and tell me it was going to be ok just like you have done so many times before.
Chasity "boobin" Laney says:
Hey daddy, I miss you so much. I'm glad that your no longer in pain. I miss you, I will always miss our small talk and me being able to talk to you if I had a problem. I miss you setting me straight when I was wrong. I'll miss you sticking up for me when you knew thats what I needed the most. I love you daddy more then what I have ever showed. You never let me take the easy road and I'm so glad you didn't, you have helped me look at things in a different perspective. I will always love you, I'll always miss you, but I know your here with me and watching over our family. I love you daddy. I will always be your boobin, boobin!! I love you daddy😍❤
Hannah (your Sherman) Russell says:
Paw paw, I have so many things I wanna say to you. I miss you. I wish you were still here with us. I wish I could hug you and hear you tell me to stop growing. I wish you could be at my graduation but I know you’re cheering me on in heaven. I have so many memories with you I wish I could just relive them all. The last thing we talked about was running away to the beach and I would just swim you across the ocean, you didn’t seem too fond of the idea. I’ll always miss you giving me coffee after mom told you to stop before you make me hyper. I have so much I want to tell you but god called you home. I’m so blessed to have a paw paw like you. I will forever tell my future children about the amazing man you were. You told me what was wrong with my car without evening hearing it. You’re the best man I’ve even known. You have blessed all of our lives tremendously and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I’ll forever miss you
Until we meet again
I love you ❤️
