My granddaddy was one of the kindest men who ever lived. He loved the Lord with all his heart and always thought the best of people. He always had a song on his lips and was always encouraging. I always knew that he loved me. I miss him so much. I can't wait to see him again someday. Jennifer Guffey, April 12, 2013
