  • I love and miss you so much already grandpa, i know you are no longer suffering and in a better place now!! Things will never be the same without you!! I could talk to you about anything and everything without feeling judged!! I am so lost without you already!!

  • I will miss Uncle Day very much. Growing up, he was at Mom and Dad’s house a lot. As a young teenager, I remember getting to go on his boat at Alum Creek (that was a big deal to me). He tried to learn me how to ski ! That was a disaster LOL. There are so many memories that I remember of family gatherings and watching all his brothers play football or baseball laughing and having a good old time. Now they are precious memories that I hold dear to my heart. I love you all. Danny and Sharon Elswick
