    It is sad to see him leave us so quickly, but it is amazing to hear about how great of a person he is and how much he will be missed. Thank you to everyone who shares a memorable moment about grandfather. We will definitely miss him at holidays, birthdays, and during football season watching the Buffalo Bills, yelling at the tv on why the quarterback didn’t throw the ball to the open receiver.

    RIP 🙏 Grandpa
