My Grandpa was so much more than my dad's dad in my life. He taught me how to be a man, showed me how to walk, talk, and act like a gentleman. He took care of what was his and was the one man in my life who made perfect sense; he took life as it came and enjoyed every minute of it. The pain of losing him is beyond comprehension today. But, I know he wants me to keep on "keepin' on" and carry on his name like he always knew I could. And I will. I love you, Grandpa, more than you ever knew. Your Grandson, Matt
