He was my grandfather. My mom’s dad, and I never got to know him. I wish that I did. What a hero. I love him without even knowing him. My mom was only 3.. his wife Anita hurt so bad. Sadly she died young too. At least they are forever together in heaven right now. God bless you grandpa! Wish u got to meet your great grandkids and me and my brother Michael, too.
