    RIP papaw you will be missed, I'm glad I came down and spent the night recently I enjoyed watching TV and laughing at the kitchen table. Nobody could ever tell me such great stories like you could. Love you so much and hope you're catching the biggest fish with a beer in your hand and a smile on your face.

    He was one of the greatest guys I have ever met. He would always help you out when you needed it and never expected anything in return. We had a lot of fun working together and he will be missed. Rest in Peace Rondo!
