His grandchildren loved it when Grandpa visited them. He was continually surprising them by slipping balloons inside the doors of their homes and bringing special treats that even Joey could eat. The kindness and consideration that he showed to them, as well as the sense of humor that he displayed to everyone, has created memories that will be cherished by all. He will be greatly missed.
