CandleSome of my favorite memories of grandpa is he always had fudge pops, frozen mini snickers bars and RC file on hand. He also taught most of us grandkids to walk on homemade stilts. He would trot around like a 2 legged pony making it look so easy and funny. Grandpa you are missed and well loved. Missy
