I just want to take the time to honor one of the few men that have inspired me. My grandfather passed away this week and even though he was 95 and we knew he would leave us soon, it still hurts. This man had been to hell and back and always had a smile on his face. A WW2 veteran, POW, and Purple Heart recipient, this man inspired me everyday. I can remember sitting on his lap when I was younger, eating Chips Ahoy chocolate chip cookies together. I hope you know how much you meant to me grandpa and that I will always strive to be the man that you were. You will be deeply missed. You are a true hero. Love you Grandpa!
