I am fortunate to marry into a family who cherished their beloved "Granddad" as much as this family does. I was welcomed into the family by Granddad with open arms and cherished all of his stories that he loved to tell. I cherish the time that I was able to spend with him talking about his grandkids that he loved so much, hearing stories of hunting and shooting, and all of his interesting hobbies that he was very good at. Although we are all extremely saddened to see him go, knowing that he gets to be re-united with his beloved Grammy brings light to it all. Rest in Peace Granddad.
