In remembrance of the most wonderful Father-In-Law anyone could ask for. Thank you so much for letting me be part of your family. We have had so much fun over the past 30 years. I will love and will miss you always. Give Grandma a hug and kiss from me. Love you Grumpy.

"You have a peace symbol on your bag? And your necklace? That means you're a hippie." - Grandpa Waken

I will always treasure the banter between Grandpa and I. I will always remember how proud he was of me when I was learning Arabic and went to Egypt and how he wanted me to ask my professor if he knew what "moshdoob" meant. I will miss seeing him every week but he will never be forgotten. I hope we made you proud Grandpa! I was certainly proud to be your granddaughter. Rest in peace and I hope you're making a ton of jokes with Grandma!
