One thing is for sure, your children and grandchildren love their Grandma and Grandpa. You both have given your family a foundation of Traditions, reunions and Holiday & Birthday gatherings. This is his Legacy , that is a part of you and what a blessing that he was able to help create so many of them with you for 42 years. This is not good bye, he will be watching over you, while he is probably helping on the Lord’s Youth Baseball Diamond in the Sky, no, he is saying, not goodbye, I will see you later………..!

    I know the weeks to come will not be easy, just know we will continue to keep you and the family in our prayers !
