    I have fond memories of visiting Grandpa David and Mary and picking vegetables from the garden. I miss him and wish that I had been able to spend more time with him while he was alive. I think I could have learned from him. I pray that his loving wife, and children will be strengthened in this time and celebrate the good memories he left behind. May he rest in peace.
