"He always took his vacation time from work that time of year. I really wish his grandkids could have met him. he would have been soo proud. The way he felt about Kinman was unbeileivable. He could see the love in his eyes and touch, so sad he passed when Kinman was only a year and a half. I know he looks down on us from time to time and smiles:) I could go on and on. Miss and love ya dad!"
