The family would like to thank everyone for their support and comfort in this time of their loss. Mom would tell him, “Hey baby I love you, Hey baby I need you, Hey baby you ain’t got to prove to me that your some kind of macho man. Looking back on the memory of, The dance we shared beneath the stars above, For a moment all the world was right, How could I ever know you’d ever say goodbye, And now I’m glad I didn’t know, The way it all would end the way it all would go, Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain, But I’d of had to miss the dance. We thought we’d get to see forever but forever has blown away. It’s so hard to say goodbye yesterday.”
The good times that made us laugh outweighed the bad. Those who knew Pudgie knew that he was the best husband, father, poppy, and friend anyone could ask for. Dad, thank you for all the things you taught us through life and now go rest with God.
