    He was my grandpa. I looked him up so I could see more pictures and I saw this. I didn’t see him very often but the memories I do have I will cherish. He was an amazing person. He was a little rough on the edges but he was very caring. I going to miss him but I’m glad that he’s no longer in pain and will be able to be with his wife again.
