Grampa, thank you so much for your wisdom, love and kindness. You were a role model who inspired me to join the military as you did to serve our country. You said it would be an adventure that I would never forget, to take lots of pictures and make lots of friends. You were right! I miss and love you dearly, thanks for always being a great grandfather to me, your love remains in my heart forever!
