He was my grandfather. He was taken away 4 years before I was born. I wonder what life would have been like with him around. I meet people all the time who hear my last name and ask if I am related to him. When they find out I am his grandson, they smile and then the stories start. Usually start with "he pulled me over when I was a kid and called my parents." People always speak very highly of him and how he was always doing the right thing taking care of the community.
