    I wish I could become half the man he was. I will miss him dearly. Heaven gained an angel but this earth lost a little bit of sunshine. I will miss his laugh. His grin. His advise. His knowledge. His love and respect he had for all us boys. There are guys that are fathers because they have to be. He was my dad because he wanted to be. As a husband he loved my mom more than life itself. There is not a love story written that could compare his love for Margaret. I know life for us will go on. But it will just be a little less sunny.

    Love you dad….

    I have fond memories of him. I know my Father (Barber Ira D. Cripe) use to cut his hair. He has touched my life in ways I don’t even fully understand. My heart goes out to his family. I wish people didn’t have to suffer at the end of life. I am glad he has been called home and now is not suffering. God Bless all with peace that passes understanding.
