Kimmie and Michael Riddle.
Here come lots of hugs and prayers from Springfield and your Mom's work. We know you need them at this time. I loved seeing your pictures in the video, as you grew up visiting Grandpa Riddle ! That is awesome stuff and you will be so so glad you did it. Not everybody makes that effort or has that privilege to know their grandparents. That is the treasure, the Love, the memories, the heart felt words they spoke to you. NOT the THINGS, right?! You two have good hearts and the Lord will guide you. Take care of your grandma and Daddy.
