I first met Mr. Grimmel when I was 16 and worked for my dad and the Massey Ferguson Dealer, Haddox Equipment, next door. I met the kids there too. What a truly wonderful family. I have had the honor of renewing that friendship over the past few years, and have seen the love in that family, caring for their dad, and the wit and joy that Mr. Grimmel maintained even as his health was failing. I love you Mr. Grimmel. I know you are enjoying Heaven now. To Frannie and all the boys, you have been a beautiful example to all of us of how to love and care for a parent who has always done the same for you and so many others. Your dad was one of a kind and I know you all know that! Love, Lill
