Grandpa words can not express how much we miss you but you lived a long life, a good life. You left a piece of who you were in each of us, your children and grand children, and great grand children. Your legacy lives on in us. Thank you for being the person you were stern but loving. I love you so much and miss you. Say hello to my Dad and mom. Until we meet again.
