The best father-in-law. JoAnn

Psalm 23
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil;
my cup...

Argel was my grandfather... a truly amazing grandpa! I have so many memories of the time spent together in my earlier years - primarily when my grandparents were living in NY. They loved to take me to their home in Upstate NY and I loved every minute of being there with them. The memories of those times are as vivid today as if they occurred just yesterday and I will cherish them forever!

Argel and his Great-Granddaughter, Kirsty Walsh.

Argel was a neat Uncle and we use to have his whole family say words like "butter and water" so we could laugh at their New York accent because they said "butta and watta". Fun memories
