Laurel (grandma), I am so sorry to see that grandpa passed away. I was hoping to be able to make it to the funeral. I only heard today from my youngest daughter that the services were earlier today. I am sorry that I haven't kept in touch. If it is ok with you I would love to hear from you either by email or phone. Rebecca Adams Mathews
