    Papa, thank you for being my favorite grandpa! I have many fond memories of you from childhood to adult. Mostly Holiday get togethers, war stories, fishing at Greenlake and going to the horse races. I pray you find peace on the other side with Nanny, and are reunited with loved ones.

    Uncle Johnny always greeted me with a big smile and hug. I’ve lived hours or states away through the years, but when I planned my travels back to the PNW, I always included a visit to see Uncle Johnny & Aunt Pearl. They both meant SO much to me. Knowing their deep faith, I know they are united in heaven.
    My heart and prayers surround the family. May we all find comfort in the memories and his love share with all of us. His spirit now shines bright and new in heaven.
