One of my favorite memories of my dad is that every morning he would proclaim that "I am going to Work". He had said that many many times after he retired. He liked working on all kinds of projects, and often helped me with mine. Several times as I was done wearing out my tennis shoes, dad would wear them to work around the house, for the "second go around". We would share clothes. In honor of Dad, I wore his socks to the funeral. Now, I can see Dad "Going To Work" in Heaven for us. There are many great memories of Dad and me, his loving son Michael. Thanks for all the wonderful Times!

So sorry about grandpa's passing. Thinking of you grandma and Michael. I told the boys today how lucky they were to have known and visited with their great-grandfather. I have lots of memories of grandpa. Do you remember when he used to let me brush his hair and put curlers in it when I was little? I always liked going to your house to play Barbies, play "barber shop" with grandpa, and have peanut butter pie and sloppy joes. Lots of good memories.
