  1. I feel blessed to have shared the last several months caring for and spending time with Grandpa. I feel that God wanted me there with him loving him and supporting not only him but my dad too. This time has brought me even closer to dad and that is a true blessing. I thank God that I was able to be there laying with Grandpa holding his hand as he passed on to eternal life. I know in my heart that he is happier now, as Shawn put it, smile because he is able to play the drums, take pictures, watch Nascar and most importantly, he is back with Grandma! I smile thinking of him and Grandma holding hands once again! I will always treasure my time with grandpa and the love that we shared. I will miss him so much that it hurts but I try to keep smiling thinking of him smiling or of him saying I love you dolly!

  2. Dear Ford Family:
    I was saddened by the Death of my Uncle Bill. We shared a lot of memories of our family and yours.
    His passing will leave a large hole in this universe.
