It has been many years since I last visited with my grandfather, but I have several good memories of time spent with him. I fondly remember his slow way of talking (always with a twinkle in his eye), the gigantic bowls of ice cream he would fix for my sisters and me, and his always present laugh. 96 years is a long time to live. I am grateful to have had him as my Grandpa.

I'm going to miss our Sunday chats, rehashing the Hawkeyes football, basketball and a little bit of wrestling. Oh we can't leave out the Cubs, they were oh so close this year on winning it all. I will remember all the gardening tips you gave us, as you were the master gardener. I was lucky to have you as part of my family, you will be greatly missed, rest in peace dear friend.

Donna, Bob and Family

P.S. Start a card game up there.
