    I am so very sorry to learn of your daddy and granddad's passing. We loved Christy as though he was a part of our family. He was a world class neighbor and Sammi and Nick only know him as "granddad" Our thoughts and prayer are with each and every one of you. May you gain comfort in knowing that he is finally reunited with the love of his life.
    Love Scott, Michelle Sammi and Nick
