Legacy of Love - Fletcher Quay Hodge

A few weeks ago my grandfather passed away. He was an amazing husband, father, grandfather,& great-grandfather. We had a wonderful celebration of his life and were able to share with friends and family just how loved he was by all. My cousin put together a video that really captures his life and his Legacy of Love.

Just a few memories....

We lived just a few blocks from he and my Granny growing up so we were able to spend many hours and many nights at their house. He had a blue pick up that I thought was so cool - we would walk to their house and he would drive us home in the back of the pick up. Grandad loved orange slices! He and Granny had the most beautiful backyard and garden. It seemed that their roses were always in bloom. They always had a special cabinet full of snacks. I remember many Christmas Eve's in their living room & decorating the tree a few weeks before. Grandad was a hard worker. When we were young he would come and help my mom around the house - he also would mow the lawn and do yard work. He could not get enough of his kids and grandkids. He always wanted us to sit in his lap or to ride the horse on his leg. I was thrilled a few years ago when he was able to meet Chris and to really get to know him. He could never be replaced. Most importantly he loved the Lord and all who knew him knew that. He was a special man of God.

We know that he is celebrating today in Jesus' arms!
