  • Grampie: You will be missed but the lessons and the kindest that you showed will live on. You and grammy welcomed me in as family when Rob and Laurie started dating. I will always remember you going to my games, taking me golfing, finding extra golf balls in the woods, all the family gatherings, being at my wedding, and most importantly loving my boys as your own.... Rest In Peace love you with all my heart. Maggie
