Saying goodbye to Grampy Gilmore

This past Sunday on January 25th, Grampy Gilmore passed away.  My grandfather was an amazing man. He gave the best hugs in world and was always delighted to see his grandchildren. The last couple years since my grandmother passed away I was able to spend much more time with him. My parents had him over for dinner every Sunday,  a time in which he told stories of his childhood, of being in the war, and of cranberry growers he knew. He always made us laugh and never had a negative thing to say about anyone. I will miss him terribly.

    Hey Revel,

    I’m really sorry for your loss.
    Glad to hear you could spend a lot of time with him. Both of them look great in the picture – look like really friendly folks.

    Take care~
    Philip

    Hey Rev,
    Beautiful words…describes grandpa to a “T”. I know the story you told me this morning is a little embarassing, but it certainly made me laugh!! I love you more than you know!! Just like grandpa’s war plane read – “We’ll Get By”; we, his family, will too. He was a wonderful example of how to live and treat people.
    Love you!! Jules
