Richard Grant Reed. Grandpa, I miss you so much. I am so proud to be your grandson. You taught me to be the man I am today. I am still in awe that you passed away on your birthday December 19th you had to be even with grandma! 82 years old, 63 years of marriage, 5 of the coolest children, 10 grandkids, and 4 great grandbabies. Quite the family. Everyone that knew you would say the same thing, that you gave anyone the greatest gift of all, your time. You taught our family to learn something new everyday. I look forward to that everyday I wake up. You were a general contractor for 40 years and I'm so proud to be working with my hands and to be in the trades. I hope heaven has a nice tall crown royal waiting for you. I love you papa.
