Whenever we had a family dinner or we were just going to visit, Great Grandpa always had some sort of treat for us as kids and even as we got older that is something that stayed the same. Whenever Grandma was at work and Papa was babysitting me, he would sometimes take me to Great Grandma and Great Grandpas house and I would just mess around with the organ. Great Grandpa said that he wanted to teach me how to play and he did a little bit but not enough for me to remember what i learned but it's something i will always cherish. With every visit, he always had a smile on his face and was watching the game. He really knew how to squeeze the life out of you when giving a hug. Family gatherings won't be the same, but I know that he'll be watching over us and laughing at every joke that has been said. Love you Great Grandpa:)
