Dear Papa,
I honestly couldn't have asked for a better grandfather. You made people laugh just walking into a room. I loved talking to you, wether it was 3000 miles away on a phone, or 3 inches away. You had a generous soul that I will never forget. I will cherish all the wonderful memories I had with you. You were a great dad,wonderful grandfather,and just in general an amazing man. You were one of the few people I could always count on. I think anyone could count you honestly. You thought of others more than you thought of yourself. I know you are looking over me. I love you forever Grandpa. Rest in Peace.

Your Grandaughter, Julianna

Mr. Stone was one of my favorite professors at Randolph Community College. His psychology class was always very interesting, never a dull moment! Every time I saw him on campus he would give a friendly smile and a "hello". Praying for his family in this time of sadness.
