(Grandfather in German) Even though he has recently passed I am thankful for having had him in my life. He was a God send for a three year old adopted girl. Him and his wife took me in as their first grandchild. We went for bike rides around the high school, played croquet and debated about cartoons. You taught me how to eat like a lady and sit up straight. I can still see him in his socks and sandals LOL! We will love you for always.
