  1. Thank you for being the best grandpa and thank you for watching over us. Susie misses you and I’ll take care of her.

  2. You will be missed grandpa. I love you and will miss you, you were more than a grandpa to me you were my best friend.

  3. Grandpa thank you for being so accepting of me all those years ago. I like to think you knew before Jon did that we would stay together. Thank you for talking to and telling him to marry me anyways after everything happened. You were always the best to me. I love you very much and you are already greatly missed.

  4. Today, on behalf of the citizens of a grateful county, we honor Mr. Farrar’s military service. We owe him, and those like him, a tremendous debt of gratitude. Surely our nation is a better and safer one because of his selflessness. I beg you to contact me if I may be of any service to your family. With deepest respect and sympathy.
