Your rocking chair was your favorite place and I’ll forever miss you rocking and tapping your feet to the beat in the garage. I’m sorry for pinching your weed and stealing your packs of cigarettes while you napped. Love you with all my heart - Brea

I love and miss you so much grandpa ! I will never forget you sitting in your garage Messing with your Metal detectors. Me and Brea used to go in there and bug you all the time about them. You used to love showing us all the things you would fine. I think we bothered you so much one day that you finally gave in and told us come on girls let’s go to the park and see if we can find some treasure. I honestly can’t even remember if we found anything or not. Just the excitement of finally grandpa‘s gonna let us see his cool machine was good enough for me. It’s been a hard few days for us. But I know your having so much fun with Ziggy and Sheldon . I hope you send our love to everyone your hanging out with .
