In memory of my Grandpa

My Grandfather (my mother's father) passed away Sunday February 7th due to Alzheimer's and Vascular Dementia. He went quickly and quietly. He has spent the last 9 months or so living with my parents until the last 2 months when it became necessary to place him in a nursing home, but he spent most of that time in the hospital.
He was a wonderful Grandpa who loved to surprise us with visits. He was a workaholic and when he came to visit when I was little he made sure that we did plenty of work too. Which as a kid I didn't appreciate. He was fun and enjoyed life. He loved trains and I remember him taking us to ride on them when I was little. He may not have excelled in all roles of his life but one area in which he did was that of a Grandfather. You will be missed Grandpa.
