I can’t narrow down all these years to one memory. The boys and I loved coming to visit you and grandma whenever we could. It was our favorite part of our summer vacation-coming down every week to see and spend time with both of you. We looked forward to that more than you’ll ever know! As sad and hard as this is, I’m forever grateful that I had you in my life for all these years. And I’m even more grateful my boys got to know and love you, too! We will love you always, Poppop!
