So sorry to hear about your dad/grandpa and that we are not there to share memories of his life. We did see him at the legion in January and we glad he was able to get in the cold weather. Ray has memories from the trailer when young and we both have memories of him and your mom being neighbors on Neptune. He will be missed. Our love to you all.
