Grandpa, I will always miss you. You were the main inspiration and influence in my life as an artist. I have so many wonderful memories of you growing up; my weekends with you in Westbury, our yearly trips to Virginia, our trip to the Caribbean, going to your Coast Guard art show, the art show at the Salamaguni club, the list goes on. You were a kind, generous, funny, strong and a loving man. You will forever be in my heart and memory.
