  1. You were my step dad, but more of a Dad to me. I will miss you forever. It will never feel real. I will do my best to look out for Amber and your grandbaby Mckenna. I wish this was just a bad dream. Until we meet again. I love you, laura. Or according to you aka Jr. Haha

  2. I will miss talking Alabama football with you through out the season. Enjoyed our time working together, rest on high my friend.

  3. My thoughts and prayers fir Stans family and friends. I haven’t seen Stan in many years but in our early years our families were close. RIP STAN.

  4. Words can never describe how much I miss you and love you, dad. I’m not sure how I’m supposed to navigate my life without my compass by my side. I called you for everything. You had my back when no one else did. You understood and listened to me. When I was in the wrong you made me see that. Just because you were my dad didnt mean you just let me get away with anything. You set me straight so many times. I wished I had thanked you more for that time you took to make me a good person. I want to call you so bad then remember that I can’t. That’s been the hardest for me. I won’t have that with anyone else. I hope that I can even be half the parent you were to me, to McKenna. I’m glad you lived to see her turn 5! We are forever grateful you got to come to her last party. She really misses her pawpaw. We talk to you everyday. We keep you near to our hearts. I wasn’t ready for this and I’m not sure I’ll ever just get over it. You were still supposed to be here. I hope you are at peace now. No more pain or sorrow. Don’t worry about us, you know that I’ll get it together in due time. I know you wouldn’t want us being so sad for long. I promise I won’t lose my place in this world and continue to make you proud. We love you more. Always and forever~ Amber Nicole & McKenna Tinsley (definitely changing it to that now in honor of you- Turner & lindsay plus ley like the end of your name ♡)

  5. Today is my birthday. Which means I wont get your call or voice text. I’m up crying at 3am after finishing the new stand series I knew we wanted to watch to discuss it. I think you would have liked it. I’m missing you more than ever. I’ll miss the story you told me every year about my birth and how you almost caught me in the delivery room, haha. It was so funny. I’m glad I have that story. You always had a story. I’ll miss hearing them and hope I can remember a few. I love you dad.
