We are sorry for the loss of your paw paw. He loved and raised you as one of his own and I know there was no one who could measure up to him in your heart. Take comfort in knowing he is with Jesus now. Cherish the many special times you shared and the great memories that will comfort you. Our sympathy also goes to Peggy and family.
Love and Prayers,
Brenda and Dale Robinson (B and Papa Dale)

Alexis I am so sorry about the passing of your paw paw. He loved you very much and you were a daughter to him and he raised you as such. He loved you more than anything. He will be greatly missed but you have all the great memories you all made together to remind you of him when you get to missing him until you two are reunited one day in Heaven! We are here for you if you need anything and we love you!
Condolences to the family. Our prayers are with you all at this time.
