My dear Grandfather,

This is the only picture of you that I have ever seen. I don't think that I ever was even told stories about you. The only thing I know about you is that you were lost when my father Jack, your son, was nine years old.

I do so wish that we had gotten to meet each other. Bless you Grandfather, and enjoy the company of both of your children, who have joined you in Heaven. We will get to meet eventually.

Jack G. Willard
