Dad, I will never forget when you first showed me how to dance and when you would bring us hamburgers at night and all other good memories. So many laughs and thanks for helping take care of my kids. You were also a wonderful grandfather with all your grandkids. May you rest in peace and be with the Lord. I will dearly miss you. Love you and your favorite words "For God & Country until we meet again.
