    Dear Coca-Cola Man/ Bubba/ Richard,

    Thank you for making my childhood so amazing. One of my favorite memories was coming over to your house when I was little for popsicles, swimming, and just spending time with you and Jan Wood. Not to mention all of your beautiful puppies that I got to see Like GiGi. You are finally reunited with her. You’re an amazing person and God really did gain an angel. You’re heart was pure gold!

    So much love,
    Your dear little neighbor,
    Abby 💖

    Thank you, for giving me such a great childhood and checking in on me after I moved out on my own. Teaching me to love everyone unconditionally and to have such a big heart. Now that I live in my own house I alway keep popsicles in my freezer for the neighbor kids! I’ll miss you’re funny stories and hanging with your family♥️
