Grandpa John

My grandpa passed away this morning, in his sleep. He was 82. He lived a good, full life, but had a stroke in the last few years that left him altered and in a nursing home. My grandma, his wife and best friend of almost 60 years, died last year. Now I can hope they’re back together again.

He was a better role model than anyone can hope for. He’s the only answer I give to “Who are your heroes?”, and he will be be missed.
