    We love you Grandpa and will miss you very much! I have countless memories growing up with such a wonderful grandfather. I’ll miss your smiling face and your sense of humor. Dad and I sat out on your roof Friday, it was beautiful out and we know you would have been out there too. Until we meet again, love you always.

    I remember going to visit your new pigs and baking cookies in the kitchen with my dear friend Carol. May your faith and your loving memories comfort you at this time. No matter how old you are one never feels more at a lost than when a parent passes. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. – Cathy J. Cuneo
