One Year Ago Today....


One year ago today, we lost a great man. It's hard to believe that a year has already gone by since the day we lost Brandon's dad, Brandon's best friend. Morris was one of the most hilarious people I have ever met. He could make you smile on your worst day. He was a loyal fried to those he loved and a faithful father and family man. He worked hard and taught my husband to be a man of his word, a man of integrity, and a man of strong work ethic. Sometimes we still can't really believe he is gone, and that he never got to meet our sweet Addie B. He had already decided that he wanted to be called Granddaddy by her. When we found out it was a girl, he was the first person Brandon called. But we know that he is her special angel and he is watching over her from Heaven, and one day we will see him again. Morris, we miss you, we love you, and we can't wait to see you again.


Morris was the best man in our wedding. What a special memory....

I'm drying my tears right now. Nicely written. I'm so sorry for yours, Brandon's and Addie's loss. Bryan's dad was the best man at his wedding too.

How beautiful this post was. What a great way to remember him and all that he meant to you guys. I know Addie will learn all about her granddaddy as she gets older! Love you guys! Praying for you!
