I wish you a Happy Birthday

Up in that big blue sky

I want to laugh when I think of you

But its mostly only cries.



I thought about you yesterday

Tears rolled down my face

I thought about you again today

The tears began to race.



I'll think about your silly jokes

And want to laugh so bad

I know its just a memory

But one I'm glad I had.



As the days go by, I hope

The tears begin to dry

But everytime I say your name

it always makes me cry.



Time is supposed to heal me

that's what everybody says

but time is taking way too long

and time is what I dread.



For each day that passes

I can not have you here

Is just another lonely day

My eyes are filled with tears.



So while you're up there waiting

Don't forget to save my place

Eventually I'll be there

With a smile upon my face.

"written by Joel White One special Grandson"...I always here people talking about if they could have one wish that it would be to win the lottery or have the dream house but as I sit here thinking about it. If I could have one wish just one wish I think I'd wish to sit with my grandpa and just hold have a conversation with him about anything I wouldn't care what it was about. I would remember every second of that conversation for the rest of my life. Today would of been you're 65th birthday and your somewhere in heaven up their watching down on me and my brothers and I know your watching and keeping us in check like every other grandfather would do the same but poppy you were special to me. A lot of people are saying now as I grew older that I look more and more like u and it makes me just think of how much of a person I would like to be as you were one day. Today is your birthday poppy and I would like you to know that I'm still down here taking care of everything you left for me to do and also that if I had one wish I wouldn't waste it. It would be something special poppy. You are gone but you will never be forgotten 4-11-49 - 11-6-09 love ya pop and happy birthday

Kelly-well as everyone knows u and i had a strange relationship..one that not a father and daughter normally would..id love to make u nervous and have u shake ur head at me..tell me to cut that out..id talk to u bout sex or somethin like it and u would cringe and shake ur head and say would you cut that out lol..i remember the nite mom made me call you and tell you when i first experimented with the deed..you hesitated as i know u were trying to figure out what u better say that mom would want you to say to me..instead you laughed continuousley and said well its bit late now isnt it..lol..then u said i bet ur moms mad as hell..lol..ugh pop i soooo miss all them conversations id have with you..i could talk to u bout everything even if u werent really listening..u never judged me..u just shake ur head all time and laugh..but then of course go home and tell mom then id hear it anyway..i remember one nite when jer and i went out and i could barely walk into the house..u asked jer what the hell happened to her..jer said she drank to much..u laughed drinkin ur own beer of course and said thats my girl..u passed something else onto me..talkin..u hated talkin on the phone and you hated when others were also..i sooo dislike talkin on the phone..i love to text..but on the phone ugh..i hate it cause u cant shut the person up..u can text and be done with it..at ur memorial i wrote something and read it and at the end i said we love you and i will miss you all my days..this was sooo true..not a day goes by..

grandkids..well i know all too well how priceless these kids were to you..and you to them..you came night and day for years to watch all of them..rock them for hours on your boney knees..i remember after our ultra sound and found out we were haveing twins goin to the house and ur sittin in ur chair..i whisper in ur ear "we're haveing twins" in only those that u knew know how harmless u were when u laughed ur ass off shaken ur head..and said "jesus christ what the hell u gonna do with them"..lol..but of course they only added to ur collection of grandkids..which you adored..lil jer gets sad with thoughts of you and will go right too happy again just by saying monkey face and saying you did it best..they continue to think ur the coolest poppy..especially joel..
