So many memories, too many to name, everyone of us knew we were your favorite because you loved us the same. Holidays at your house will not be the same. We will miss your deep fried turkey, pineapple upside down cake, and your potato salad was supreme. Having an awesome grandfather for us was a reality and not a dream. Some of us were privileged to see you everyday growing up, others called and face-timed daily just to keep in touch. We truly wish you were still here. Forever and always in our hearts, the memories of you will hold dear. We love you grandpa, and always will!
Lovingly Submitted, The Grandchildren
