Grandpa was quiet, loyal, and lovingly faithful . I'll never forget the day (probably only about 5-7 years ago) I stopped by their house and he was on his hands and knees, scrubbing the kitchen floor because it was too hard on my grandma's knees. He was sweet to my kids, and probably thought it was weird and neat that we had adopted, and at the end liked taking Joey for a ride on his wheel chair. I remember many times he would run me to piano lessons, helping my parents out with childcare (with grandma) when needed, and always the first call for a house project. He loved woodworking, and especially making toys like barns, animals, and rifles. But what he loved most in this world was Grandma (he asked her a few days ago if they could just "go" together).
