I remember Theresa and I making “commercials” as a kid with Grandpa. I also recall the silly hand gestures Grandpa would make as we were driving away. He would hold his hands up to his nose and wriggle his fingers and we would mimic it then he would do another gesture and we would copy that as well. My love of card games stems from Grandpa teaching me how to play Sheep’s Head, Rummy and poker in general. While playing, he was always quick to offer up root beer and the cookies that were kept in the oven…this continued even as I grew up and brought my kids over. I’m sad he never had the chance to meet my youngest son Charles to dangle his keys in a playing manner with him. There are so many more great memories but those will be for another time. As Cindy put it with a reverberating tone…”He was a good man!”. I will add that he was a great grandpa and knowing my grandma, mom and uncles, I will take the liberty to say he was a great husband and dad!
