1: 1989 Our Families were brought together
2: Aaron | I can attribute my love for Star Wars to Grandma and Grandpa as they were the ones to give me the Trilogy on VHS. I must have watched The Empire Strikes Back every day that week.
3: I loved watching Grandpa and Dad play pool in the basement, trying to play myself, and then one day getting a kid size cue so Jason and I could play. We were always surprised by a new toy or gadget that he made for us for the next time we came to his house in Missouri. | I remember when I was about 6 or 7 seeing a picture of Clint Eastwood on TV and thinking that Grandpa Bob was on the news. I was so confused when it was explained to me that, in fact, it was NOT Grandpa!
5: Grandpa made lots of neat stuff for us, like a coat rack that got taller as we grew. And when I lost a wooden pocket knife that I got at a craft fair he helped me make a new one! All the toys. puzzles and things he made for us reminds me of Grandpa and how much he loves us.
7: Brittany | My favorite memory was going to their house and doing crafts and working with Grandpa in his workshop. I love that you can see his passion for his work and his craftsmanship. I always loved when Grandma and I would have a tea party and make cookies and invite Grandpa to join us.
9: Hannah | Grandpa taught me to play pool and after that it was my "thing" and I was always asking him to come play with me. | I remember when Grandma and Grandpa took me and Kaitlyn to the covered bridge to play in the creek. These huge St. Bernards came along and splashed in the water. And on the way homes we had a yawning contest.
11: I loved working with Grandpa in his shop and when he would take us over to the neighbors to see the pigeons. | One of my favorite times was making and decorating those wooden reindeer in his shop for Christmas.
13: Getting together with Grandpa and everyone for his 80th birthday was fun! | I really enjoyed when I went to his house with Kaitlyn and Hannah and he showed us how to cut wood and we made stilts and painted them.
14: Steven | I like to hit golf balls just like Grandpa
15: I got to help Grandpa build a treasure chest in his workshop and then I got to paint it. | I liked seeing Grandma and Grandpa when we all got together for birthday parties
16: Sam | After a fun visit Sam told his Mom "I miss Grandpa already!"
17: Mia | Grandpa - I love you all the way to the moon!
