Not sure how I will do without you after being around you the last 40 years of my life. I get a little emotional especially with Jake. He cried for you and I seen that. I had never seen a dog actually cry. Spending alot of time with him and feeding him that expensive stuff you always got. He will be going home soon to live with Christopher! Haven't said I Love you and will definitely miss your grouchy self! Godspeed my friend

Dad, this is just so unreal. Thank you for coming home and spending these last 3 months of your life showing me and the kids the love that you did. I am so sorry that it wasn't longer. I think we had some good conversations and I will forever be grateful for that. Don't worry about anything down here. We are placing you with your mama. Say hello to her for me. I will miss you more than you know. See you when I get there.

Jaimie Davis
