58 years ago I met you. I was 10 and you were 21. Gisele shared with me that you were fine that she only gave birth to boys because I was your girl. I remember you bribing me with ice cream to shine your army boots. You would bring me a quart of ice cream and I would say, "That's not enough, you bring me a gallon and I will shine your boots." You would get that gallon for me! I remember Gisele throwing us out of the house and you taking me to the movies at the army base. One time we had to leave because we were laughing so hard. I remember you and Grandpa taking me hunting. You had me adjusting mirrors to attract the birds. When I realized what I was doing, I refused. I said, "You move the mirrors yourself!" You said, "I'm not killing the birds, Grandpa is - I'm just shooting my gun in the air." That was the last hunting trip I went on. I remember staying with you and Gisele for the summer - we had SO much fun - so much laughing! One time I took JP to the park in his carriage and he stood up and fell into a stream. He was all muddy and wet. I was so nervous to take him back home - scared what you and Gisele would say. As soon as I walked in the door, you both were shocked but cracked up laughing when I told you both what happened. Although we got older and distance kept us apart we made up for lost time with our daily phone calls. If I didn't hear from you I'd call and if you didn't hear from me you'd call. It was comforting knowing we were there for each other making sure we were ok. I miss you already! Please say hi and give big hugs to the family and if you see my dogs take care of them for me until I am reunited with you all. From one dinosaur to another other with love, Nicole

Mon cher petit Papa,

Quel bonheur de parler toutes ces heures au téléphone depuis que maman est partie. Quel douleur que cela a était pour toi. Mais je me rappel des heures que l'on a passé sur nos souvenirs de Maman, La Rochelle, la France, la cuisine ... Ah la cuisine, que des cours que je t'ai donné au téléphone, pour revoir les recettes de maman et pour ne pas manger la même chose tous les jours ! On a passé des bons moments au téléphone.

Et ta photo en uniforme UPS ! Le nombre de fois que je pense à  toi chaque fois je vois ces camionnettes brunes en France. Et je pense à  tous ces hivers là , où tu as passé des nuits dans le froid extrême avec des tonnes de neige. Que je demandait au bon dieu de te protéger. Mais tu était un "champion" dans ces gros bahuts sur la route ! Tu as mérité ta montre UPS plus que ils se sont rendus compte.

Désormais tu es de nouveau dans les bras de Maman, et ma petite Kelly est surement à  tes côtes en train de te caresser ton front. Elle t'aimait beaucoup; elle me posait beaucoup de questions sur Maman et toi. Tu n'as pas souffert, et je crois Maman et Kelly en est pour quelque chose. Maintenant tu peux "venir" en France quand tu veux. Je suis certain que je sentirai ta présence bientôt ...

Tu étais un merveilleux Papa; Grâce à toi, j'ai fais des études et j'ai des connaissances que personne puissent m'enlever. Tu as été plus important pour moi que tu aurais pu imaginer; Merci Papa.

Je t'aime, et je t'aimerai, toujours mon cher Papa ...

Pappy,

When I think of you, I think all the times I begged to ride your bike, the times we would sit and have long philosophical discussions for hours, and also the nights we would watch Dean Martin's Celebrity Roasts together and just laugh until we couldn't breathe. I smile when I think of your hair flapping in the wind, and the nights we would go to Flannigans and walk out on the pier to say goodbye to the day. It is hard to think, now I have to say goodbye to you....but in reality...I will see you another day. Tell MeMe I love her and cant wait to see you both, happy and healthy. Since I am not good at saying goodbye...I will say...."Au revoir...Je t'aime..."

"God gives us many gifts in life, from
friends, and neighbors too; but the
greatest gift that God can give,
is in the grandfather he gave to me..."

Love,
Your granddaughter, Nicole Ayers
