In loving memory...

"Gran"
June 9, 1915 - February 28, 2008
We had the hardest time yesterday trying to sum this man's life up in 3 lines, each line being no longer than 16 characters. A near impossible task. He was an inventor, an eternal optimist, a true family man, and a child of God. But to me, he was everything a grandfather should be.
