my grandpa was a wonderful man the best memory i have of him was when me and my dad lived with my grandparents and me and my grandpa would let me drive the lawn mower when i was little it was so much fun and another memory is when i thought i saw a coyote and i couldnt say the word so he had no idea of what i was trying to tell him what i was saying and he was laughing when he figured out what i was saying... I love you grandpa
It is a sad day, Uncle Dick was a good one, one of my favorites. My thoughts go out to all of you. It's been a long time since I have seen most of you, but the memories I have of when we were younger and visiting are still good. Take care. Ron
