    You are the man who was like a father to me for the last 30 yrs. A man that I called nearly everyday just to say “Hi, how are you doing” You were a constant source of guidance in my life and a forever friend that I had the pleasure of knowing. You will forever be Grampy to our boys and we will never forget all the good times and laughter we’ve shared together. So, you’ve more than earned your Angel Wings and took with you a piece of my Heart too…Fly high my friend to your special place in Heaven until we meet again…Love you

    Grampy we miss you so much already. You gave us lots of great memories that we can look back to… playing ball in the yard, playing a game or watching a movie together. We had lots of fun going out with you to Texas Roadhouse (the rolls and Ribs) and Olive Garden but, we just loved to hang out with you at home and to share a pizza too! Best Grampy Ever! Love you.
