Country music star Faith Hill‘s father Wesley “Ted” Perry passed away on February 5th in Franklin, Tennessee. Tim McGraw took to social media to share the sad news and honor his father-in-law.

“Faith’s father passed away last week at 88 yrs old.
He was the sweetest, kindest most gentle man I’ve ever known…….
No man in my life has ever made such an impact on me as to how to be a human, a father and a friend.
I’ll never, in 10 lifetimes, be able to live up to his example, but man, he has set a mark that all of us should strive for.
His legacy will live on through the 3 beautiful souls he raised, Faith and her brothers, Steve and Wesley…
I’m sure a day will not pass for the rest of my life, that he will not show up in my thoughts.
We all love you G Pa,” McGraw posted along with a video sharing some beautiful family moments.

Our hearts go out to Faith, Tim, and the Perry family during this difficult time.

“Grandpa (Tell Me ‘Bout the Good Old Days)” Lyrics 

Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days
Sometimes it feels like this world’s gone crazy
And Grandpa, take me back to yesterday
When the line between right and wrong
Didn’t seem so hazy
Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other, come what may?
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say and then forget
Did families really bow their heads to pray
Did daddies really never go away?
Oh, Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days
Grandpa, everything is changing fast
We call it progress, but I just don’t know
And Grandpa, let’s wander back into the past
And paint me the picture of long ago
Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other, come what may?
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say and then forget
Did families really bow their heads to pray
Did daddies really never go away?
Oh, Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days
Oh, Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days
