I still haven't met anyone who can tell a story better than you could. I'll never forget the look you gave me when I came home from college the first time. My heart still aches as bad as it did the day we lost you. I love you, Grandpa.

I Irene Baldwin on Jan 3, 2012

I will miss you always Dad.
Love, Irene
