  7. I have a Rocking Chair that my grandfather made for my brother when he was just a little boy. I’ve since then taken over the chair and have it placed in my family room. When my son Mason sits in it and and rocks I always think that the chair was made with love, care and hardwork which are the main things I’ll always remember about my grandpa. This chair will be in my family and passed along so that we can always remember what a wonderful man he was. I’ll always have special memories of him and my grandmother and how I used to love to go see them on my lunchbreak from work. They would always make sure they had a fresh pot of beans for me. I love and miss them both very much.

  9. My uncle Ray told my parents when my mom was expecting me, that he wanted to be my Godfather so I always said that He loved me before I was born and that was a blessing. That’s the way He was, always caring, protecting and loving… I miss him… a lot… Thanks Ray Jr. and Geri to share with me and my family the great man that was your father.
