    My Grampa,

    One of my mentors, the one who I looked up to, the one I went to for advice, my father figure,. How you were so quick witted, so determined, so persistent. You taught me well, throughout my childhood and into adulthood. I will never forget all the special memories we shared. Thoughts of you and our memories will always be a part of my heart. “Smiling Lessons” will be passed onto my children and hopefully their children. You are one of a kind, Grandpa.. I know you did it “Your Way.” You will NEVER be forgotten. I will always love you.

    Jodi xoxo
