God saw that Dad was getting tired. A cure was not to be. So he put his arms around him and whispered " Come with Me ". With tearful eyes we watched him suffer, and saw him fade away. Although we loved him dearly. We could not make him stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us . He only takes " THE BEST ". Love you always and forever; Your Loving Son Mike

Our Grandpa kept a garden.
A garden of the heart;
He planted all the good things,
that gave our lives their start.
He turned us to the sunshine,
And encouraged us to dream;
Fostering and nurturing the seeds of self-esteem.
And then the winds and rain came,
He protected us enough;
But not too much because he knew we would stand up strong and tough.
His constant good example,
Always taught us right from wrong;
Markers for our pathway that will last a lifetime long.
We are our Grandpa’s garden;
We are his legacy.
Thank you Grandpa, we love you to the moon and back and will miss you forever❤️ Your grandchildren Kristin, Jason, Sean and Lauren
