    Oh my God, Grandpa I will miss ur smile and the chuckle that came behind it. You never gave me no bad advice, always answered what I asked honestly, but always followed with your thoughts and opinions; and they were always on point or very close in narrative, and appreciated even when I didnt agree. Love you grandpa Rest In Peace and Love. Yes I will always be Mike’s friend till death and keep him straight as you would say,lol,I knew you loved him dearly, just as I loved u & moma Sarah.
