Tuesday, August 9, 2022, Heaven gained another angel. Not only did we lose a father, grandfather, and great grandfather, we lost the most selfless, strongest man we have ever known. Although our hearts hurt here on earth, what a joyful reunion that took place in Heaven as our Mamaw met him after seven years apart at the gates. Please pray for our entire family in the days to come. Rest in Peace Papaw, we will meet you again someday soon.
