Grandpa,

I’m going to miss our trips to the pub and our long chats. I loved the random topics we would talk about and all trivia you would quiz me on. I’ve learned so much from you while growing up and I will cherish that knowledge for the years to come. I hope to be just as wise as you when I’m a grandfather. Thank you for all the great memories! Love you Grandpa!

Rest in Peace,

Cameron

Grandpa,

I'll never forget the memories we shared over the years. Especially the discussions we would have over a beer. Your life advice and perspective on the world has been invaluable to me. You are a great teacher and an amazing grandfather, and I just wish I could have one last pint with you…

Rest in Peace,


Zachary
