I just remember how spritely and happy he was when I was growing up spending time with his grandaughter Andrea Brown, and how he would always be there happily to help fix something or just happy to be around his family and always crackin a joke or two whenever I saw him. He was an awesome grandfather to his grandkids. Lots of love to nana we will always be here for you. I love you and your family dearly. Thank you for letting me get to know you all so well.
