Not sure what to say?

I will always cherish the memories that I have of my grandpa. I will always remember Grandpa saying that veggies will put hair on my chest, him asking if I have a boyfriend in elementary school, pulling his ears to see if his tounge would stick out, and when he would always fall asleep in his recliner and let the whole house know that he was asleep with his snores. But mostly, I'll remember my grandpa as the sweet, ol' fisherman who loved his grandchildren very much. I love you, Grandpa, I...

My mom is going to make fish, and it won't be from Grampa. I'll never hear anyone snore as loudy or with with as much enthusiasm. No one will ever again tell me that whatever I'm eating will put hair on my chest. I'm going to really miss him. One of my favorite memories, though, is when I was little and we would box with oven mitts.
I love you, Gramps.

I have so many wonderful memories of my brother, Don. Some of them reach WAY back. He was 9 1/2 years older than I was and he spoiled me rotten when I was little. I recall rides in his first cars and being Junior Bridesmaid at his wedding. I remember once when he was getting ready for a date with Jo and he was late; he asked me to press his pants. I said I didn't know how and he said I would do fine. Well, I scorched them and he didn't even get mad. He was a member of my wedding party...

First of all, my deapest sympathy for the family of Mr Ulrich. I had the privledge to meet Mr Ulrich several times. I know he was a great Husband,father,grandfather and friend to many who knew him. Many may ask how I could make these comments.
The answer is simple,he always had a smile and was always ready to lend a hand. Of course he would never miss a float down the river, trying for the ever elusive trout that roam the beautiful waters with his son Paul and others. Based on the...

Don was the type of person that made America great. In memory of him, I am not going to work today, but rather I am going fishing. Peace be with the Ulrich family.

We were saddened to hear about the passing of Grandpa Don. One of our favorite memories is of our Sarah at 3 years old going off for a walk hand-in-hand with Grandpa Don. We always looked forward to seeing him and Grandma Jo on our camping trips up north. Rest in peace.

I was only a cousin but I have some fond memories of growing up with Don back in the forties. I wish we had not grown apart after we both got married. He was a neat guy. Both my husband Don and I wish to say to his family how sorry we are for their loss.

Mrs. Ulrich and family,
Wishing you comfort and peace at this difficult time.

I'll always remember our pizza parties at your house on Friday nights - how we carried on - and how Mr. Ulrich tolerated our shenanigans.

Love, Rich

When I was little I would always run and jump on my grampa's lap. I called him "Gampa." My favorite time with him was when me, Nikki,my dad and, him went on a boat ride, fishing. I sat in his lap helping him drive the boat. I had this huge hat on that covered my whole face, so it was pretty hard to help him but I managed to do it. How I will remember him the most is when he always gave me gooses and lots of kisses when I saw him. I will miss all those goosses and kisses from him...
