    Lynne, I’ve always enjoyed all of your stories about Gramps and feel that I know him and Nan. I can almost taste his Sunday dinners. You have been blessed with a wonderful life with him for so long, and what a joy all of you have been to him! He was obviously a man of God, and now he is an angel of God.

    With our love and prayers for you and your family,

    Helen and Rollie

    You have given me a life of endless love
    and kindness that I could never repay.
    Eternal peace for you is what I pray.

    I already miss that beautiful face
    when I walk through your door.
    I hope you know that you are loved dearly forevermore.

    Dark days will come there is no doubt,
    but the memory and light of you will snuff them right out.

    You are in my heart that beats strongly in my chest.
    Once again, God took one of the best.
