I have so many memories of my Dad and I, I don't know where to begin. One of my favorite ones as a child was My Dad taking me to Weaver Lake to go swimming and going to a Farm to get Fresh Chicken Eggs by the Dozens. Then it was time for me to get my Drivers Permit and dad and I were going to get some Chow Mien at Jin's in Crystal and he let me Drive there didn't work out as planned as I were to drive up the curb right to the door, instead of putting the truck into park That was the end of my Driving with my Dad. The last memory I want to Share is going to the Casino with him. How much fun we all had Either loosing our Butts or Winning. As we all knew Dad never came home with empty pockets. Rest Easy Dad! I love you Always and Forever! Even though I can't see you Your always in my HEART!!

When I think of my Grandpa Traczyk the first thing that comes to mind is going to the local lake with him and grandma. I remember riding in his brown pickup, sitting in between him and grandma as we made our way to the lake. When we'd get there, he'd let me stand in the water as I attempted to catch all the little bullheads swimming around my legs. I was never fast enough to catch them, but that didn't stop Grandpa from encouraging me.

Grandpa, you were a great man and will be missed greatly. Please rest easy knowing we are all here taking care of Grandma. I love you.

Grandpa, these last couple weeks haven't been easy, but I know you are in a better place now. I hope your polka dancing and winning big on the slot machine, spending lots of time out doors hunting & fishing, collecting a bunch of junk, and working in your workshop making bird feeders. You left behind a huge family who will love, support and help one other as you would have told us to as we try to cope with you being gone. We will all take care of Grandma and be there for her whenever she needs us. This isn't goodbye, but see you later. Rest easy Grandpa Traczyk, I love you! 💓

One of my favorite memories of Grandpa is from when I was in the third grade. I was really into Laura Ingalls Wilder, so he had the idea of driving to Walnut Grove, Minnesota which is where the books are set. While we were there, we toured the Wilder's sod house, and got to reenact a lot of "Little House on the Prairie." It was honestly one of my best childhood memories. . . .especially because Grandpa bought me the coolest bonnet, which I continued to wear for far too many years afterward. :)
