“Our amazing Grandfather was able to find peace as he left this world. Heaven gained the most beautiful soul. A beautiful reunion occurred in heaven as Mark & Carolyn reunited. We wish we could have seen it. We are so incredibly lucky to have known him. He loved teaching his grandkids to fish and camp. Thank you for the beautiful sunrise Gramps.”
