Grandpa I have so many fond memories of you .Starting when I was a little girl going grocery shopping with you at Safeway . You always purchased a stocking filled with goodies for me. Christmas was always a great memory all the grandchildren including myself standing in a lane to receive Christmas money from you. I always enjoyed being with grandma and you going to the movie theater to watch a Spanish movie . As I grew older I have memories of your brother and you always adding or remodeling the house. In the evenings I would watch you prepare dinner . I would comment how you made everything look so good. Your reply would be” you want me to make you the same thing ?” You would always give me great cooking tips . Your Thanksgiving ,Christmas and New Year’s Eve dinners will be missed but never forgotten. I’m thankful for all the wonderful years I spent getting to know the best grandpa ever. You will forever hold a special place in heart.
