Grandpa was a great man, I just remember him always being there and doing anything he could for anyone. He always had words of wisdom. I am deeply sorry for the loss, and I too carry a special spot in my heart for a VERY SPECIAL MAN.

I may not have been grandpa's real granddaughter, but he always treated me like part of the family. I have so many memories of being at his house, listening to his stories and his jokes and sitting around the dinner table just talking, he would listen to anything I had to say, no matter how what it was. It was a happy time in my life and I will always be thankful for the kindness that he showed me. I love you Grandpa,you will always have a special place in my heart. Love Patty

Aunt Janett, Linda, Vicki, Steven, Dennis, Brenda and the whole extended family, our thoughts are with you. We had such great times with Uncle Howard and Aunt Janett while we were growing up. He shared his birthday with me, always reminding me he was 21 when I was born. I remember when our Dad died what support he gave to our family especially Mom. Our thoughts are with all of you during this difficult time.
