Past Comments

Gina

Over the last few months I have really gotten to know my grandpa and for that I am very grateful. He got a very bad sickness, but there was no stopping him, he was determined to make the best of it. I can remember sitting in the living room watching TV and out of no where he would tell me he was going to exercise. He would get up and go in the bedroom and do 500 arm weights I can’t even do 500 arm weights. Not only was I impressed that my 93 year old grandpa could do this and with a sickness on top of it, I was so proud of him for his strength and determination. Every day that I came over to spend time with my grandpa, he would ask me how my day was and did I have a hard day at work and that touched my heart because he truly cared and wanted to know how my day was. It breaks my heart the he will never be able to ask me that question again. My grandpa really cared about others when he should have been concerned about himself. I remember getting sick and feeling really dizzy and he offered me his walker. That was just the sweetest thing ever. One time I was really upset at his house and I started to cry and he looked right at me and said, “Gina don’t be sad, I love you and will always be your friend.” And you know what, he will always be my friend. Me and grandpa had some good times watching movies, watching American Idol together and even the Brewer games. And even though he is no longer with us, he will remain in my thoughts and memories always. Grandpa I would like to thank you for giving me a chance to get to know you before you had to leave, I have a lot of wonderful memories of you. Although I know my grandpa is in a better place with my grandma, he will be truly missed and always loved.

We just heard of John”s passing this morning. We did not even know when Bobbie passed away. We now live in Southern Indiana. We were all part of the “Ireland Group” who went to dinners together for MANY years.
I know I Gail talked to Bobbie within the past few months. Still, we are sooo surprised that they both are gone.
We have VERY happy memories of John and Bobbie. When we were in Ireland
on St. Patty’s Day, the 4 of us had lunch together in a little family own restaurant. We had fish and chips. Most places are closed on St. Patty’s Day during the day, as it it a national holiday there.
They told us stories of many places they had traveled. They were so much like us–they liked to travel and experience adventures.
They were kind and loving people. We will miss them.
Our sympathy goes out to the family.
