I am sorry to hear of your loss. One of the most difficult things we have to deal with is the death of a loved one. The Bible promise; "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." (John 5:28,29) The Bible gives us hope that one day our dead loved ones will be brought back to life;.

Hey Grandpa. Just wanted to say that even though I haven’t seen you in a while I love you very much. Wish I could have just had 1 more conversation with you. Also wish you could have met my Beautiful wife and my 2 awesome kids. I just know they would’ve immediately fell in Love with you because let’s face the fact that if someone met you they automatically loved you. You will be greatly missed by anyone who ever knew you. Speaking for myself I’ll miss you until I meet you on the other side. Rest In Peace Grandpa.

Uncle Bobby. I love you from the bottom of my heart. We didn't see you often at all. Mainly at funerals. But that didn't change theLove I have for you. Other than uncle Walt you're my favorite uncle on your side.,after Daddy passed in 2000. I told my bubba. As long as you were alive daddy wouldn't be Completely gone. Because y'all favored so much you could almost be twins. Even though you were yrs apart. Well almost 19yrs you're gone now. I feel like I've lost my daddy over again plus my uncle. And it's going to be hard to see you in the casket. I just want you to know I love you dearly. Even though I know you don't see this. At least even though I didn't make it in time to see you at the hospital before you passed. I was ableto tell Tammy to tell you I said I love you and will miss you. I know even though you wanted to stay with your family. You had to go. You were tired. I know how your children feel. I know that you're happy because you are home with your mom, dad,and all of your brothers and sisters. Even though our hearts are broken to pieces. I will forever love you and miss you. If there's anyway for you to ask God anything or say anything anything to our loved ones gone on. Would you plz ask him to take care of all of you. And plz tell my momma and daddy and all of y'all I love and miss them dearly.. Until we meet Again. And ask him to PLZ not take any more home for a very, VERY,VERY long time. There is no one other than my bubba and me living in our IMMEDIATE family by mom and dad or them living now. And to PLZ don't take my bubba for yrs and yrs or at least till I'm gone.
Angel,Sam,Tammy,Johnny and Bobby. I know how you are feeling. It's the worst feeling in the world when you have to let go of a parent. I know I've lost both of mine. Don't let others tell you how long you are supposed to grieve. Take all the time you need. One second, minute , hour or day at a time. I still after almost 19 yrs with daddy and almost 13 with momma. I still have some HARD days. And cry all day. I still try from time to time to call them. Then remember they're gone and I can't. I can smell a certain thing and it reminds me if daddy.. I do something and its like my mom's here. It's a long process to get to a point of not bursting into tears just at the drop of a hat. Just to be able to talk about them without bursting in to tears.. Just remember its ok. I love you, pray for you and if I can help in anyway I'm here.
Aunt Sue,
I can't say I know what you're going thru. I Haven't lost my husband. But I know it's HORRIBLE PAIN..
Just know I'm so so so sorry. I love you and praying that God will give you strength to take it one day at a time. Or 1 breathe,heartbeat at a time.
