Dear Grandpa,

I miss you immensely. I will miss the random calls where I'd answer and you'd ask if you called me. I will miss you calling me your favorite Grandbaby until one of the others did something nice and then I'd lose my title. I'll miss you going through every family member's name before you would finally get to mine. I will miss the calls and having to drive 30 minutes out to fix your phone or computer. You showed me so much love and gave me so many memories I will always cherish and never forget, but most of all I will miss your big Grandpa hugs and kisses.

I love you so much!

- Your Mallard

I remember John very well from our years in the Grandview Missouri school system. He was a pleasant fellow with a good sense of humor. May God rest his soul and comfort those who grieve. Nothin but smooth roads ahead now John.

We have known each other since High School and got reacquainted several years ago.
I have talked to John many times over the last year and he always talked about how much his family meant to him. He adored Linda, and his grandchildren. We shared a horror of spiders, trying to outdo each other with scary pictures. You will be very missed, John-boy. Yelp, you will.
