My aunt called me a while ago and asked me if I could email this picture that I took in 2008 of my grandpa to a local printing store. Thought it would be a good picture to post on my blog along with the obituary information.

Love you Pa! You will be missed!!

Great-great grandchildren? Wow! I hope my grandparents live long enough to see their great-great grandchildren. Their oldest great-grandchild is only 3 so they have awhile to go.

Handsome picture. Thinking of you and your family.
