My grandpa was my best friend. I spent the last 7 years cleaning as his “maid”. Worlds best boss let me tell you what! He made me lunch every time I came over. My favorite was when he’d make us garlic bread and have a crisp glass of milk for us to dip it in because that was our “thing.” We’d sit and laugh and talk. I’ll forever miss when we’d watch our show together. It aired on Tuesday nights and he’d record it so we could watch it together on Sunday cleaning days. Life may be short but it’s best when spent with your loved ones. I’ll miss you forever Grandpa. Give grandma a hug for me!

To the Heald clan 😉 May your memories of Orchard Lane and the wonderful life you had with such great parents comfort you. They surounded you all with love by the tons, laughter and disapline when needed 😉 and support when you decided to follow your dreams. The Love Den and Jac had was something no words are needed to define. You could see and feel it when they where around. May your memories comfort you and know Heaven has a special angle .
