For all who may not of known our grandfather he was a very special man. He was the best grandfather he could be.

He has many family members that miss him dearly. Every day we think or hope he will walk in that garage with his hair slicked back and his sunglasses on. That is a dream we have and we hope it would come true one day.

Even though he is not here he is in all of our hearts and thoughts.

Sorry for the lose.

love heather, brian and hunter

I would have came to see Joey, I always did like all of you. But the dumb asses in your family will not allow me to visit. Please tell Kathy to make up her mind to what part of the family she belongs.
