My wonderful, sweet, hilarious, loving Pawpaw passed away during the night.
He was able to spend some really special time with Nana during his stay at the hospital, and was able to gather his kids yesterday for some final time with them. I'm so thankful for that.
I'm also SO thankful that he didn't have to suffer through a long, slow fight and that he finally felt some peace.
Pawpaw- I love you so very much!! I had visions last night of you floating off to heaven with an angel on each arm...and you had a huge smile on your face! I hope that's exactly how it went down :) I will miss so many things about you. I'll miss your big loud deep laugh that scared Avery. I'll miss talking sports with you on the phone after pretty much every Texans/UT football game. I'll miss seeing you melt whenever you see my babygirls. I'll miss hugging you and I'll miss your cheek kisses. I'll miss the way you exclaimed "Roxanne!" whenever I called. I'll miss you telling me what stellar athletes my brothers are. I'll miss seeing you and Nana together. I'll miss seeing you sitting in your "chair"...
Thank You, God, for my awesome Pawpaw. Thank You for the incredible family that he raised, that I am blessed to be a part of. He was a good man. You are a good God! Please let him watch golf and football in heaven for eternity.
