Saying goodbye is always so hard for me! We celebrated the life of my grandfather, Elvis Ray Kinnaird, yesterday. My grandaddy was an amazing husband, loving father, successful business man, and declarated war hero. He was a rock in our family. He was always there to tell each of us how proud of us he was. He also would tell us he loved us! Precious words! I loved to listen to him talk about his experiences in WWII and we all adored his quirky little songs. In fact, my mom got her love of music from my grandaddy. I can only imagine how much he is enjoying the sounds of heaven.
The services at the church and the graveside were very classy. My brother made sure Grandaddy had FULL military honors. We were surrounded by family from my dad’s brother and sisters to cousins to second and third cousins on my grandmother’s side. It was precious! We loved having everyone all around us! It was a great way to celebrate the life of a man who gave his all daily to his family, friends, country, church, and work!
I miss him terribly!
