This is to remember the Grandfather I never got to meet. His passing 9 years before my birth has always left a hole in my heart. The stories of his dedication as a peace officer and his passion for baseball have always given me wonderful memories. My Grandmother, Pansy, loved him dearly to the day she passed.

I hope he is enjoying eternal peace.
