    Me and Lisa wish we could be there for my grandmother and family. PAPA was my Hero and mentor, he showed me how a man should live. I take pride in his service to this country, a country that I served in large part because of the pride I had in him and his service. Mostly PAPA showed me how having love in your heart makes life wonderful and fulfilling. He loved his family with all his heart and it showed. I will always remember him for his love and will live my life following his examples. Me and Lisa are very sorry we could not be there and want the family to know we love them and they are all in our hearts this and everyday.
    Love you Grandma James, Mom, Vickie, Jackie, and Larry.
