I will miss you so very much. We have shared so many years together, growing up as the eldest boy and girl in our ever growing family. My memories of you were always good. You were such a kind and gentle person. I am so grateful that we had these last years together and that I could come and spend time with you. I hope you are at peace and someday we will be together again.
I remember Bernie coming to our house in Bruce Crossing. I was pretty small at that time but I remembered his humor, and when I saw him at the family reunion He still had the great humor.
I have memories of Easter egg hunting at your house when I was a little girl. I hope you are at peace Grandpa and our family will be together again in Heaven.
