I am one of ALL of his grandchildren that he loved. It feels as though I spent every weekend at grandmoma and granddaddy's house growing up. They would save the mini pages out of the Wednesday paper for me and we'd sit together at their round kitchen table and do the mini page. You can rest assure, if you were ever a toddler, you were on granddaddy's hip!!! I don't know if many knew this but in addition to being an excellent Gardner, a fixer Of all things and the best driver... he was also a prankster! I don't remember exactly how we remedied this but once he was fixing a knob that kept falling off of the console tv. He applied some goo on the knob and told me to hold it tightly. Well, this was for granddaddy and I got to help and I wanted to make him proud so I squeezed that thing with ALL MY MIGHT!!! He was going to be so proud!! A few minutes later he asked me to give it back to him so I did.. unsuccessfully. My fingers were glued to the thing!!! I could go on for days with stories because there are so very many memories with my grandparents! They just don't make them any better than our granddaddy. He was an excellent provider, a military man to the core and adored his family!! He is Loved dearly and will be missed greatly.
