Grandpa Ragland- He held a special place in our heart. Phone calls were not frequent enough!
Living in Hawaii bridged a wide gap for weekend visits, but I held dear the younger years when He and Grandma would stay the summer with us in Hawaii. Bird watching, picnics, and chicken foot. We were blessed enough to visit in March 2020, and oh the memories we will cherish and as spent time with my children, and talk to me about the Word of God. I love you grandpa. Until I see you again in heaven. Love Natasha Ash
