09/24/08



My pawpaw died 2 years ago today with cancer. I miss him so much. Today has been hard. It seems it only keeps getting harder instead of getting easy. My grandfather was someone who I loved dearly. What I would give to have his arms around me one more time or to just hear his voice.........I miss you pawpaw.




This is a song I heard a couple weeks ago and it brought back sooooo many memories about my grandfather. He taught me many things but one I will never forget is him teaching me how to fish! We LOVED to fish! This is the song below. If you ever get a chance to hear it look up Jeff Bates.




Lyrics to Riverbank :
verse 1

If there ever was a mornin when the fish might bite it would be right now, anyother time weda done had our lines cast out.
Sippin on a jug of mommas sweet ice tea, catchin them ol' cat, why couldnt today be like that.

chorus

I wish this was a riverbank instead of a graveyard, wish we sittin and fishin and this wouldnt be so hard. It was my
favorite thing that we use to do, but now we cant. I wish you were here, I wish this was a river bank.

verse 2

I Remember the day that I bated my hook with a chunk of ham? I got a big bite and he yanked the pole right outta my hand.
Well you jumped up and you grabbed the net and we both jumped in, yea we got wet, ah but we got him.

chorus


Man, I wish this was a riverbank instead of a graveyard, wish we sittin and fishin and this wouldnt be so hard. It was my
favorite thing that we use to do, but now we cant. I wish you were here, I wish this was a river bank.

bridge

I know you wouldnt want me sittin around bein sad, you taught me better then that. So im leavin now and gonna head on out
and try and catch a few, and while im there, I'll cast a line for you.

chorus

I wish this was a riverbank instead of a graveyard, wish we sittin and fishin and this wouldnt be so damn hard. It was my
favorite thing that we use to do, but now we cant. I wish you were here, I wish you were here, I wish this was a river bank.

Boot,
You know that your PawPaw and Aunt Jill are having the time of their lifes up there in Heaven. I'll tell you one thing - you know he has gotten your Aunt Jill and he is teaching her how to Dance - but he is saving a dance for each of us girls for when we show up. He loved you and Jessica so much and we will always miss him...... he would be as proud of you as I am! I love you MOM
