Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers for our family this week. Grandpa sure is one heck of man and that shows through his 8 children. I'm going to miss that grin and great sense of humor that he had. I'm so glad that he is finally at peace now. Grandpa this is not a goodbye, it's an I will see you later. Please keep watching over everyone. We love you to the moon and back.
