    Love Him. Miss Him.

    My grandfather was the healthiest person I knew! He ate onions like he would eat apples for goodness sakes! Unfortunately, life was a ***** to him and he got into an accident. He fell off a horse. I miss him so much and I love him even more.

    Still Missing Him

    My Grandfather was a strong man. A proud man. The type of man you would have seen standing tall for a picture in the old days. He came from Europe to Canada and found work as a furniture re-finisher while my grandmother sewed for a living. He couldn't speak English when he came...
