Trisha--We loved your dad. He was an added joy when we celebrated the holidays at our home. We loved his humor and his stories. Most of all we loved the loved he had for Tristan. No grandfather could have loved a grandchild so much. He will truly be missed in our family. Our prayers are with you every step that you take. We love you so much.

Mike and family, our heart and prayers are lifting you up knowing God is walking with you. Having just experienced my Dad's homegoing to Heaven last month I know they are having s great family reunion welcoming your Dad too!!!! What precious reunions await us!!! Our Waggoner reunions down through the years in Anthony were huge at the park with all the cousins and families, then eventually moved to the church. Always loved going and seeing you, the last years for my dad with alzheimers has been challenging to be there and have missed it. Great times of fellowship with family are so treasured, always enjoyed you and our visits. Wish we could physically be with you, but again please know our hearts are. much love and prayers ...

Mike, heartfelt condolences for the loss of your Dad. When I first got to the Refinery I worked with him. I thought him a great guy. God bless you all.
