It is truly an honor to be standing here in front of you and talk to you about my grandpa.
I am one of the luckiest people I know to have had a grandfather like mine for 35 years.
As a child I always had his love, his hilarious jokes (that we heard again and again) and always someone to tease me!!
As a teenager, I still have that crucial and unconditional love, plus the fact that I've the toughest looking grandpa around.
As an adult I had a friend but I also had someone I could count on no matter who, what, where, or why.
All of us grandchildren had that and many of you here today felt the same way I'm sure.
Today is a celebration. We had enough sadness and my grandpa wouldn't want us sitting around crying!!! He was the life of the party and the funniest one in the room and let's remember him as such.…
