  1. Christine Gran says:

    Dad! I love you. I know you will look upon us & send your love every night. I know you are at peace & that gives me peace. My favorite memory of you is playing kickball in the backyard. We made the backyard a mess. Lol!! Also, I appreciate your ability to truly listen & be accepting of anything outside the norm without judgement. You definitely embodied the Aquarius side of you. I know you will always be there when I look up to the stars. I listened to the song, Centerfield, today on the radio & it made me smile. Much love!!! Be love & be free!!!

    I am grateful for the time we had & will miss our conversations more than anything. You listened, you gave solid advice that was honest and hard to find in many people. And you never judged a soul nor were you ever critical. You were a God fearing and remorseful and you loved your children. I know you are at peace. Thank you for all that you’ve done for me; even if you never realized it. Love you always Dave ❤
