Madalyn and family, Brice and I are so sorry to hear about the lost of your Dad/husband. Pee Wee was such a good man and worked hard for his family. He did all the right things for those close to him, making sure they were all involved in the church. Your Dad/husband is now safe in heaven. Probably "On the wings of a snow white dove and sending all of his pure sweet love to you". God Bless each of you.
