I have lots of child hood memories of Jim. Most especially of sitting over a 30 gallon trash can in my sister and his kitchen holding ducks by their legs while he cleaned them. And frog gigging and stacking hay. I know he loved his girls and he will be deeply missed.

Grandpa Andy is the only grandpa I really had. I have so many great memories with him. Him and my husband Brian were very close, they loved going fishing together. Here are a couple pictures I have of grandpa Andy. We love and miss him so much.
