Grandfather was an amazing husband father and even better grandfather. I learned to golf from grandfather taking me out on the fairway and hitting balls in his back yard. Their isnt enough space on here to tell all the great funny stories and amazing things grandfather had told me in my life. I will miss you till the day I die. I'm glad your no longer in pain or suffering with your eyes and all the other medical stuff you were dealing with. I love you so much and thank you for raising my dad. You were a great man and an awesome grandfather I'll never forget you and I will always think about you. I wish I would have spent more time with you when you were here. I love you grandfather it's not goodbye its see you later. Rest in peace grandfather.
