  1. My sincerest condolences to the family. He was a really good guy. I remember him as a teenager when he drove a bus. Many prayers for comfort and peace.

  2. What are grandpas made of?
    Hands to guide, family pride, giant bear hugs, and giant heart tugs. Tickles and fun, days in the sun, candy sneaker, hid and seeker. Best fan clapper, after meal napper, tale from the past, memories that last. Wisdom to teach, always in reach, strength in his arms, and magical charms. Life that inspires, hero to admire, endless love and a gift from above. That’s what grandpas are made of!
