Me: "Hey Grandpa, what do you want for dessert? Cookies, brownie, pie or ice cream?"
Grandpa: "All of the above!"

I definitely got my love of desserts from this man. Hope heaven has enough for you to pick from. I love you and will miss you forever.

The day we blessed my son Gabriel in Florida by Father Leo and my parents seemed so happy we did that. That blessing was a very special day for all of us.

My favorite memory is all the games of Uno we have played over the years. Although it is such a simple game, it was always the best time playing with my grandpa. I will never be able to look at a deck of Uno cards the same again.
