My Pawpaw



My pawpaw passed away today after 86 years of life.  He served our country, He cared for me!  Many of my memories involve my grandparents, they kept me from a baby until mom started staying home with us.  He picked me up everyday from my mom in his blue omni, would take me to his house and throw me in bed with my grandma.  The year Cracker Barrel opened my grandparents would come 3 times a day.  When I worked they would stay right next to me.  He has been in poor health and it is truly a blessing that God called him home.  He now can be with his wife of 50+ years and with our Lord!  He always used to say, "Right Meggie?"  and I would say "Right Pawpaw!"
