October 4, 1913 – February 9, 2008

My grandfather passed away last Saturday so all of the family is now gathered here in York, PA to attend his funeral services and celebrate his life. Last night many of the 8 children, 20 grandchildren, and 13 great grandchildren paged through family albums and laughed together, remembering story after story of all of our childhoods. All I could think of was that this was exactly what grandpa hoped for after he passed.
