Right there with you. As long as you carry his memory in your heart, he is not gone.

My condolences Dan. It sounds like he meant so much to you. He must have been a very special person.

I'm sorry to hear that. My grand father passed away a few years ago. Being closer to him than my own father it was a hard thing. Whatever you believe, I am sure our grandfathers are in a better place.

I know just how you feel Dan. I was there a few years ago.

A New Year...without Grandpa


Maybe our grandpas are up there shootin' the bull while fishing or fixing up an old tractor together.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Condolences, Dan, and feel free to call or whatever. OK? Remember this, though, as long as you can remember him, he still exists in some form, through how he influenced your life.

My Condolences.

My granddad was the guy I always wanted to be. I still live by his words and advice after all these years.
