Uncle Roscoe and Aunt Kathryn were both very kind to me as a child, and there kindness meant so much to me at that very difficult time in my life! I especially remember how they embraced my mother, Maralynn !

I am so grateful for all of the special memories we shared together - from teaching me how to drive, to road trips, to our celebrations at the track. Thank you for showing me so much love. I am so glad that you had the chance to meet Bailey. On the third day of her life, you held her and she smiled. She knew your love was special. I remember the first time she said grandpa. Your eyes lit up!She misses the rides on your walker and bringing you your Boost drink. She went looking for you the other day. I told her you were in heaven with grandma. I miss you and love you very much. Rest easy. Love Dee
