I’m glad that i have a lot of great memories of being around Grandpa when i was a little kid. I was glad i could come up to visit him for his 90th Birthday. I now know he is in a better place, with our lord and with grandma Oney and the rest of the family who has gone before him. Rest in peace Grandpa.

I feel so blessed to have spent more time with Grandpa over the last couple years than I ever did before. He was always so thankful to see me and I know he is in a better place where he was anxious to be. It makes me happy to know because he talked about it with me often. It is a happy ending to 95 years!

My sincere condolences on the passing of Winfred. I’ve thought of all of you often over the years and the times spent in Adario during our younger years. I remember Winfred with fond memories. May he be at rest now in the arms of Jesus.
