Wow Gramp almost 98 what amazing things you must have seen in all those years. We will all miss you but am glad Jay will have some company. You two stay out of trouble waiting on us all to arrive. We have a lot more years left if your 98 is any clue for the rest of us. May you rest in paradise!
Love you
