I remember when us grandkids were younger, every year on easter you would walk us over to the park so the grown ups could hide easter eggs out in the yard without us spying. You truly was an amazing grandfather. I <3 and miss you so very much. You may be gone but you'll never be forgotten. R.I.P. Pap
