I will forever be thankful to be part of your family. You gave me a sense of family when mine was broken! You were an amazing grandfather (pop). I will be forever grateful for your endless babysitting, school taxi driver, being patient , and loving my children Like they were the air your breathe for. Because of you my children have endless memories that they can refer to, to help them get through this loss. I’ll never forgot you having the worst time trying to remember/ say Kelsey’s name and you being the very first person to feed her that whole bottle of water! You gave Chloe the gift of loving the ocean and lobstering , even though she wants to save the life all all the creature you would catch in the pots! She would always go to you for comfort and from that she got your leg shaking ability that she does all the time!
My son got the best, your name! I wouldn’t have said that 18 plus years ago, but now I happy we named him after you and his dad! I’ll never forget the day you brought him to McDonald’s and he wanted and adult meal when he was like 7, you were speechless I’m sure until he said “my mom let’s me get it” and then he ate the whole thing! You gave my husband the memories of this last summer of lobster with you. Though, he has so many memories of fishing with you I know this past summer was his favorite! I don’t think he’ll ever forgive you for throwing out his goKart though! My point being, you got better with age and with grandchildren, and I only wish we got a little more time with you. But, I’m thankful we had the best of you! I loved like my own father and will miss you ! No more pain, just driving the loop and doubling down!! Until we meet again!
