I have very fond memories of sitting in Oma and Opa's living room, enjoying a cool break from the heat outside, and watching wrestling with my Opa. He was patient with me as I asked questions about who the wrestlers were and what kinds of rivalries and drama was going on with the wrestling community. Opa was always kind to me, asking me how I was and how school was going, making a point to catch up with me on my birthday or a holiday. I have always been thankful to have him as a grandparent - he will be missed. My love and thoughts go to everyone else touched by his passing.
