    I’m going to miss you Grandpa, thanks for the lifetime of memories, Crab cook out’s, 4th of July at the beach, fishing in the bay and river, our trip to Oregon and the list go’s on. I am grateful to of spent the time I had with you this past summer enjoying fine Mexican food, cold beer and getting to listen to your stories as we went through your flight book. You were the best example on how kindness, love and a strong work ethic could mold you into a truly great man. Heaven is rejoicing now as they have received such a blessing in your arrival. I can only hope to be as good a grand parent as you were to me and will look forward to being with you again when the lord calls me up. I love you and will miss you dearly.Rob
