"Pappo, I will never forget your endless love and loving heart. The way your soft sweet voice and big heart captured the hearts of many. I will never forget your words of comfort through song and sweet sounds of you playing your Hawaiian guitar. I will never forget how you embraced me every morning with a hug while singing Good Morning to You and offering your toast and jam. I will never forget how you held me in your lap from morning to night till I fell asleep. I will never forget how you always let me be your shadow ... even in church as a little girl ...there was no where else I'd rather be than alongside My Precious Pappo! I Miss You and love you infinity... until we meet again in Heaven.. Bring back My Bonnie to Me ?"
