A Great Man

Kenny and I with Ma and Pa at our wedding Sept. 4, 1999

We lost my husband's grandpa last week, "Pa", as everybody knows him. He passed away September 2. Looking back, this was one of the sweetest men I have every known. He was 84. His birthday was March 9. I had scheduled my c-section when I had Kenleigh on his birthday. She decided she wanted her own birthday and came 4 days earlier. She was crazy about her Pa. It has been hard because she will ask where he is and she is just too young to understand. We tell her he is in heaven with Jesus. He always had a pocket full of tootsie rolls and was always ready to hand them out to the kids. He also loved catfish. So every time I see tootsie rolls or catfish I will think of Pa. I know he is in a much better place but it is still hard to lose a loved one.
