Grandpa you are going to be missed by me always and forever. Over the years we got to spend a lot of time together talking on the phone and in person watching Michigan State Football and Basketball. I loved getting advice from my Grandpa. My Grandpa was a wise man. I loved being on your Euchre team at our Christmas Eve party. It took me forever to learn but once I got the hang of it I was really good.

I also will never forget spending the night at your house when I was a kid. Grandma Gross would take me shopping and then after your golf game with the guys we would go out to dinner with Bob and Dawn Jipson. They would bring Lyndsay their granddaughter with them. These are the memories that I will treasure for the rest of my life.

I love you Grandpa, you will always be in my heart 💜!

Love,

Holly
