    My grandpa Richard was one of the sweetest and loving people I have ever met. As a child I loved going over there for sleepovers, partly so I could hear Grandpa’s funny, yet repetitive, jokes, and eat things like “Stavias.”
    No one will ever measure up. I love and miss you more than anything Grandpa. R.I.P.
