Grandpa, the days when you would waltz with me standing on your feet while watching Lawrence Welk on TV are long in the past, but will always remain a favorite childhood memory. Although you are missed, I\’m happy to know that now you are waltzing in Heaven with Angels standing on your feet! 🙂 I love you.
Joe, Although it seems like yesterday, it was 38 years ago you welcomed me into your home and your family when I started dating and eventually married your daughter Marsha; you never did get rid of me. I miss you terribly, but you will always live in my heart. My life was enriched by knowing you and I will always treasure, not only, the memories of our camping, fishing and boating trips, but also the family moments, just being together. As I told you many times Joe, you were not only a Father-in-Law to me; I considered you my Father. Thank you for the years of support, of happiness and for being My Friend. Until we meet again Dadâ€¦ thanks for the memoriesâ€¦I love you. John
