My Grandfather, My Best Father, My Grand Teacher.
Smart, Big, strong, honest, honorable, respectful, Quiet and God Loving Man. You taught me with your actions not so much with your words. You showed me the best ways of how a man stands up. You showed me that a man acts through action not talk. I watched you in many ways, a great man, a man's man. The definition of a good just man has you to help define its meaning.
I watched you be a great Husband to Grandma Ida May. Grandma was… tough, feisty and loving. My Grandparents had very few disagreeable moments and even fewer arguments in front of me. That deep bass baritone voice could shake the house alone if my Grandfather wished. He was clearly the man of the house, strong enough to handle all aspects, but to Grandma he gave control. I watched a big tall giant of a man standing tall and still while a 90 pound woman had worked me out for something I cannot remember why. I do know I dared no raise my hands in defense though. I was at that time so long ago about 175, 5-09, a soldier's build. I would not dare even look at them with a side eye. Respect, manners, restraint was some of the many things received well from you Grandpa.
One of the first true providers that i learned from. I never once heard Grandaddy complain. I can honestly say we never went hungry. He was blessed to be able to always provide.
This and more I thankfully know, helps contribute to my innermost confidence, my drive, it stems from watching firsthand. When he failed at something, he just started over, tried again and would not quit. This taught me that giving up is not an option.
In my heart you will remain strong and current, In my mind, thoughts of you will gleefully crowd my memories, from my mouth stories of you will fill my children's ears, your teaching ways have successfully been passed on.
I live you… I honor you… I remember you… I love you Grandpa. Rest In Peace.
*GOD DID WELL WITH YOU AND YOU DID WELL WITH BY GOD. (A.S.N.F.)
Your Loving Protege,
