If there is a relative in my family, besides my parents, who had an affect on me, it was you. I certainly inherited my passion for history from you and always appreciated the fact that it was obvious that you loved me and cared about me. I'll never forget, before I was even 10, the words of encouragement you expressed to me that I should use my tallent for God...I certainly am still trying to do so.
You were patriotic and knowledgeable and some of my best memories involve you and Mom and the times we'd be together just "visitin". (Especially the time I gave ya'll the tour of the historic sites in Chattanooga.)
I know you're with my Dad and your Dad and Mom and Jesus. I look forward to being with ya'll again. I know it won't be as long as it has been.
I'll always love you!
