  1. “Miss Me, But Let Me Go” When I come to the end of the road, And the sun has set for me. I want no rites in a gloom filled room. Why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little, but not too long, And not with your head bowed low. Remember the love that we once shared, Miss me, but let me go.
    For this is a journey we all must take. And each must go alone; It’s all a part of the Master’s plan, A step on the road to home. When you are lonely or sick at heart, Go to the friends we know. And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds, ” Miss Me, But Let Me Go”

Thank you for all life’s lesson & the many wonderful times that you & grandmother gave us. We Love You. REST IN ABRAHAMS BOSOM!🤲🙏❤

  3. candle 8Granddaddy I am really sad that I can no longer hear or voice of you telling your life stories. Iam at a lost for words. I miss your laughter and smiling face. Everytime I traveled to Cali I had to call you and grandmother to let you know I was in town. We would meet up get a bite to eat and laugh the whole time. I love and miss you so much. I know you are at peace. Love your granddaughter Tonya

  4. candle 7Godfather I will miss you dearly. You were such an influence in my life and my children especially Kenneth. You and Jane were always there for me whenever I needed help. I know your smiling and having a good time in heaven.I love you always and forever.

  5. You were my Grandfather and the Father of my Mother meaning that you are more than a relative you are a legacy…the moments that we shared through trial and tribulation will never be forgotten and the wisdom you passed down to me through those times will be passed down to my children and beyond…the legacy that began in our family will continue but most importantly the love will be filtered as well as the thanking and acknowledgement of God for having a Grandfather like you in my life…You will always be present in memory and in prayer….Love you Grandaddy.
