He was a son, brother, boyfriend, lover, husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend. He was the one who was there when you got in trouble and was there when you were in trouble. He helped silently when he could and loudly when he needed to. He was a refreshing spring when you were down and a solid rock when you needed to find land. He was a teacher and a police officer. The drove a truck and played dress up. He had rough hands and held a baby with care.
Grandpa you are some one who can never be replaced and someone who will be more missed then most. You helped even when people didn’t know and you were the first person I wanted to tell things to. I love you and hope you and grandma are looking down and smiling.
