Never having known either of my grandfathers and only one of my grandmothers I tend to look at the relationships others have with theirs. It amazes me when people will have nothing to do with their grandparents or vise versa. There is SO much the different generations could teach and learn each other. I hope and pray that I can be the type of person to my daughter and someday (years and years from now) my grandkid/s that your grandfather was to you.
The memories you have of him should be charished and passed along to keep them alive. Let your kids and grandkids know what a great man he was and what an insperation he was to you. Someday I'm sure they will look at you in much the same way.
I'm so very sorry for your loss and I thank you for sharing your grandfather with us. He was a very special man and I'm certain he is very proud of you.
Take care brother, ....Tim
