Your passing occurred 11 weeks before your son (my father) was born. He missed you greatly and loved you fully without even knowing you.
You have made a major impact on our family, and will always be loved and missed. God has you in his arms, and we know you are watching from heaven. Hopefully, we are all making you proud, grandpa.
