Missing Grandpa tonight. Vacation has finally settled down and the emotions have a moment to settle back in.

Thank you for inspiring me to be the best man I know how to be, Grandpa. Without you I wouldn't be the man I am today. You will always hold the most prized spot in my memories. I can't wait to tell my son just how wonderful of a man you were.

Uncle Jack was my only uncle and very dear to me as a child growing up. I remember visiting the family in KY and all us cousins would have a blast playing together.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. There are no words to make you feel better, but know he is in that peaceful valley. He can now celebrate with Jesus the true reason for this season that he loved and made special for so many.
