But my lips are sealed . We talked about him taking us for rides in the wagon he hooked it to the lawnmower . Too him and Wayne pulling off some little boys pants and putting them in some rafters . We laughed and we cried but it was so special ! I LOVE YOU DADDY AND MISS YOU SO MUCH , YOUR BABY GIRL !

  2. T.A. And Donald Ray use to get me in all kinds of trouble. I never will forget when they took me out to shoot B-B guns. In town no less. We ended up shooting a bird on the roof of a house. Who did the house belong to? The Chief of Police at the time in Bay City. He came out of the house a they grabbed my hNds and we took off running. We hid under the train trestle for what seemed like hours before heading back home. I had discovered him on Facebook not too long ago. He was on there playing solitaire a lot. He will be missed. Prayers for his family. Wish I could be there for the funeral but a bout of arthritis is keeping me at home right now.
    Maybe it will ease up by Tuesday.
