  1. Grandpa, We will miss your charm, witt and positive outlook on life. You were and will continue to be an inspiration to all of us. You have touched so many people on your life\’s journey. We will keep you alive in our hearts forever. Thank you for being such a great role model. We love you dearly and will miss your presence. But you are with the Lord now and we look forward to seeing you again someday. Dearest Maria, Thank you for taking such good care of our grandpa the last 24 years. You are an angel. Grandpa was able to continue life as he knew it because you were at his side through it all. You always made sure he had what he needed. It\’s hard to put into words what your patience and loving nature has meant to our family. Thanks sooo much for being there. We love you dearly….Randy, Tracy, Karly and Ashly

  2. I can\’t believe it has been 7 years since Pattie Pitts-Hoffman and I went to Grandpas 95th Birthday party. I brought along my daughter, Bailey who was around 4-6 months young! I had a wonderful time meeting the rest of the “Pitts” clan that day. I have known Pattie, Katie Sissy and Pop since I was only 9 years old and it feels like I grew up as one of thier younger sisters. Your family made me feel very welcome that day. It realy will be a fond memory that I will undoubtedly keep close to my heart forever. God Bless and sincere condolences to the entire family. Love, Christa

  3. I am so thankful that I had the chance to meet grandpa. He was a real delight and had a lot of spunk. He will leave a lasting memory in my heart.

  4. I met Hap first in 1977 when I visited Ron with my first husband,Dave. I never thought the next time I visited it would be as Ron\’s wife in 1999. I feel privileged to have been made a part of the family and forever grateful for being able to share Hap\’s 100th and 102nd birthdays. You were a lovely man Hap and will be greatly missed. My thoughts are with you Maria as I know what you are going through. Love Chris
