Dear Grandpa, You were a wonderful grandfather and all-around great man. Thank you for everything you and Grandma have done for all of us and for what both of you have taught all of us throughout the years. I will truly treasure the memories until we meet again. Rest easy and enjoy eternal peace with Jesus and our family in Heaven. Remember how much you are loved. We will all miss you. God bless you, Grandpa.
