One thing I’d like to share about my grandpa is even though he may have been a little stern, he was probably the most kind hearted and family oriented man I would have ever known. There wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do to help or be there for his kids including grandkids. I’m proud to have been his granddaughter and hope to one day see him again. I love you forever grandpa ❤️ May your soul rest and I hope you’re at a beach somewhere in paradise watching the ocean waves.
