This is for Papa, because he wants something to read! LOL! He is so close to retirement! Only 2 more weeks left but he only has 5 days that he has to work! Unbelievable! Where did those 30 years go? You would think after you give a company that many years you would at least get a thank you, but since GM closed down in OKC , we had to go to Kansas City and they really aren't fond of us okies! So they basically have said don't let the door hit you on the way out! I say all that to say how proud I am that he has given most of his adult life to this company just so he could make a living for his family. He would get up before the crack of dawn and drive an hour to start work and then most of the time he would be out doing work at the church in the evening and it would get us back home so late, but he did it because he loved his family so much and he wanted to provide for us! We are grateful for his dedication to GM, and even more than that his love for the Lord and his family! Yes it is the end of his career at GM, but he has a new career that he is so excited about, he can't wait to get started! He says he will get to use his brains for a chance and not his body! I know he will be great at what he will be doing! Another thing he does great is loving our grandbabies! That is the best thing about going back home, we get to see the babies and be there for our 1st grandbaby from Candace! So, I say all that to say, "Thank you!" for you have done for our family. I know you have made a lot of sacrifices and for that I am grateful, and I know our children are as well! We are proud of you!
