A FEW WORDS: Though we need to weep your loss, you dwell in that safe place in our hearts where no storm or night or pain can reach you. Let us not look for you only in memory, where we would grow lonely without you. You would want us to find you in presence beside us when beauty brightens when kindness glows and music echoes eternal tones. By Philosopher John ODonahue
Messages from the Grandchildren
Loving memories from the ones left behind who love you and miss you.
The poppy grew on barren battlefields so it is with this symbol that we honor the lasting memory of our fallen heroes.
COMMENTS / CONDOLENCES
Though it breaks my heart to know you're gone, it fills me with joy to know you're reunited with grandma, free of pain and suffering. Grandpa was an amazing man who always had a smile on his face and brought a smile to anyone lucky enough to be in his presence. Rest easy gramps.

We had a wonderful grandfather, One who never really grew old; His smile was made of sunshine, And his heart was solid gold; His eyes were as bright as shining stars, And in his cheeks fair roses you see. We had a wonderful grandfather, And that’s the way it will always be. But take heed, because He’s still keeping an eye on all of us, So let’s make sure He will like what he sees.
