    You were an honorable, strong, passionate, and loving man. I’m glad to be able to reflect on the amazing relationship and bond we shared in the many fond memories. The waves of emotion are deep and enduring but all in all you had a wonderful long lived and very interesting life that I’m sure you are proud to have had. I wish you to look down on all of us every once and a while to direct and encourage a path that you would be proud of. You’ll forever live in my heart and memories. Until we meet again my Grandpa. I love you and we will miss you in our physical presence ❤️
