I really liked talking with my Great Granddad on my last visit. I learned things about him I didn't know. My favorite was that he was in the Navy and was a Baker, just like my Dad was learning to be. With his and Great Aunt Cookie's help I was able to complete my family tree for Scouting. I will miss you. Conner Roach.
