Another Great Man Gone

Just a few days ago, exactly 1 month and 1 day after my grandfather passed, Jeremiah's grandfather and the namesake of Eli passed away as well.  Louie Raymond Woody aka Buster passed away in his home on February 10th 2012 surrounded by his loving wife and family.  

Grandpa Woody was a wonderful funny talented and God Fearing man who was loved by so many and whom so many looked up to.  As I have shared before, Jeremiah credits the majority of his strong faith to his Grandfather and I know that although he is not showing much of it, he is having a hard time with the loss of his grandfather.

We will be traveling back to Texas later this week to be with family and to lay him to rest. 

Grandpa Woody was a great singer and in his younger years he was in a Texas Swing band where he wrote and recorded this song for his wife of 70 years...

I will always remember him for his love of God and music and I hope that my son, Eli Buster, lives up to such a great name.
