We'll Miss You, Grandpa

Early Tuesday morning, Todd's dad passed away after battling Leukemia. He was 86 years old.

This man...this man was simply the best, most amazing man I ever met. I feel honored that I got to be his daughter-in-law. He was adored by all, and everyone knew him. He was courageous and so young at heart. He loved to fly his four seat plane, captain his motor boat, and hunt all over the world. He served in the Army during WWII and earned a purple heart for being wounded in battle. He even liberated prisoners at Dachau concentration camp in Germany.

He loved to ride his motorcycle, and even went skydiving...when he was 81! He never lacked for adventure and his spirit will always remain. I feel bad for my kids...they had him for such a short time. We will all truly miss him...

We love you, Grandpa.
