Grandpa: Thanks for all the treasured childhood memories of snowy Christmas holidays and summertime lake picnics. I remember stories of jobs from your post-depression childhood, from your firefighting days, a few from service in the military, and of course memories of the candy store. I appreciate the work/service ethic you lived from the days of selling celery as a kid, to your military service protecting the US and Europe, to your firefighting service for Ft Wayne, and your time as a Shriner. I appreciate your love and dedication to the family you created with Rosie and the extended family as it grew over the years. I remember you as the essence of the hard working, patriotic American and truly appreciate what you and your fellow citizens built. The generations of the future will face their own challenges and build their own future, but I am truly appreciative of the one you were part of building. May those that knew you best keep those values and spirit alive in our own lives. With much love, your grandson, B (Barry, bear bear, BB gun)
