  1. Grandpa was my buddy!!!! Josh and I moved to P.A to take care of him and I will never forget the adventures we had, the stories he told, and the relationship we built over the years. The love we have for him is immeasurable and his stories will live on. I'm so glad I got to know the man my husband looks up to in the way I did. I was very blessed. We miss you so much Grandpa!!!
