Grandpa



We love you, Grandpa!
 
I will always remember and cherish the summer that I went with you to Great Uncle Gordy's and got to experience farming with horses and good old redneck life!  (Maybe that's why I was drawn to and ended up living in Alberta!) 
Thanks for all the horse drawn wagon rides, hot chocolate visits with you and Grandma around the big dinning room table, sharing all the interesting stories of your childhood, your horse help and knowledge when I was in 4-H, the cuddles and love you showered on my children and the wonderful family get togethers for birthdays, anniversaries and holiday celebrations.  Such a close, amazing (and a little crazy :) family you leave behind!
 
We will miss you, Grandpa.
But are so glad to have shared so many wonderful moments with you that will remain in our memories forever.
I imagine you are riding your horse through a lush green field where the sun will always shine.
See you there one day.
Love always.
