Thank you grandpa for the theater trips to Jones Beach, the walks on the boardwalks and beaches, the visits to the playground, for taking us to see every single Indiana Jones movie at the matinee, for the Hershey Kiss late night treats when we slept over, and for being the kind of man a younger generation could look up to. Your dedication, values, sense of humor, and tenacity will long be remembered.
