    What a wonderful man. An inspiration to be kind and giving as he was to everyone he knew. He was a positive role model for his grandchildren and made them feel loved and special. I am thankful and blessed to have so many memories of his kind and gentle nature and selfless generosity. He truly enjoyed making others happy and always put everyone’s needs before his own. He holds a very special place in my heart and I will cherish my memories of watching him beam with pride when he was surrounded by his family.
