There are so many wonderful memories that
can be expressed about my greatgrampa; but most of all he will be remembered
by his strong youthful nature and quite gentle ways.
My grampa flood told me yesterday the day
grampa John past away that he always chased me around the yard and he always
carried me around. Looking into my greatgrampa's eyes you could see a
sparkle of youth dancing around and his sweet ear to ear smile made you long
to be in his carefree presence. Grampa's youthful nature must also be
apparent to young ones. I was drawn to grandpa John almost instantly. One of
my favorite pass times was when grandpa was reading a story to me from one
of his many books he had sat aside just for me. No matter where we saw papa
John I would run with open arms and he would happily pick me up and take me
to have our play time. I really loved papa John my memory of him will
always be in my heart and nomatter what he will always be in my heart.
