His Signature

Weaving thick fingers through wavy white hair

Grace spilling from his smile

Losing his sixth pair of reading glasses

Lifting a child in an embrace

His hands on your shoulders

His presence

Your gift

His back cracks,

His laugh

His rough hands and slivers

His soft hands in Florida

Him and Granny "making out" in front of me just to make me cringe. (Now I wish he was still here just so he COULD do that)

His hugs against his big, loving chest.

The fright of hearing his big booming voice when you know you've done something wrong.

I miss him :'''(

I only pray that someday I can make a fraction of the impact that you write about when you speak of him. Wish I could have known him better. We're still praying for you all.

Yesterday Susan said to me, "One day when I was at Granny and Poppy's and I asked Poppy for a drink cause I was thirsty, he said, 'you want some pickle juice?' He was eating pickles."

It was a memory that made us all smile.
