In loving memory of Grandpa, I will always remember you making us your delicious pancakes when we would come to visit, and washing dishes with Grandma. You set a great example of a loving husband that always stayed with me. I will miss you very much but treasure the memories we shared. I love you Grandpa.

I will always remember Pete as the person I could sit with for hours and talk wood working and just enjoy general conversation. Pete was to me a very caring person. I will miss him as I always looked forward to our visits with him and Peg. My prayers are with you.
