Pappy was a very special man to his family and was loved by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. He will be remembered in many ways but especially with his beautiful smile. God looked upon his garden and found an empty place. He then looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face. So he closed your weary eyelids, and whispered, "Peace be thine." In our hearts forever.
