Rest In Peace Grandpa

Thank you for all the great memory's on your farm. Swimming in the beach area you made on your pond. Volleyball with the family during fish fry's and your delicious fish fry's. Fishing with you and Dad on the pond. The time you let me drive your tractor and I don't know why but I always enjoyed going for a ride in your old farm truck and watching you drive when I was a kid. Thank you.
I love you Grandpa

My deepest sympathy to Grandma my Dad my Aunt Pat my Aunt Kate and Uncle BJ. Thoughts and prayers to you all.
