    Grandfather, you were many things to many people, but the people who loved you most called you grandpa. We will never forget your many pearls of wisdom, nor your many toasts, anicdotes, mannerisms and your charm. I hope you rest now in peace, free from the burdens of this world. We love you. J & GA
