Probably the fondest memory of your dad was his love of the water and taking his boat out on the lake! I loved when we would visit with you all and we’d all go hang out for the day on the water! He and Pappy Green Jeans would race and the boats would be bouncing on the currents in the lake and Erin and I definitely thought we were in Disney World! Such fond memories. Prayers and hugs and may God bring peace and love to all of you! He’s smiling right down on all of you now ❤️
