So many memories come flooding back from years raising our families together. I could tell of rabbit hunts, barbecues, card games where secret signals occurred, a turkey that chased, s..ghetti ordered at the Pizza Hut, card tables that didn’t survive games of spoons, family bowling nights, hair cuts and so much more. We sat in bleachers and watched our kids play in sports arenas, attended graduations and birthdays. My favorite memories though, I think are the days we would haul the horse tank to the Arkansas and spend the day floating down the river. The whole set up was always a comical challenge finding crates to sit on for each of the kids and inflating inner tubes and getting filled ice chest situated. I can still see you and Jimmy perched in those tubes with your white farmer tanned legs drapped over the side of the rubber tubes. All was fun until we rounded a bend and others would be waiting with buckets to soak upcoming tubers and tank families. The war would be on. Lol. Grady, I see you walking by a heavenly river today...a river that flows and runs smoothly finding its own path and way to meander. Fish jump creating ripples that flow out to you allowing you to breathe in all the awe ness that heaven has to offer. A tree stand isn’t needed ...the deer walk about nudging you along in a sunshine that is warmer than you have ever felt before. Joy waits around each bend and fills your heart and soul. Do me a favor and save me a crate to sit upon. You will be missed. Deb
