Grandpa Dinny, I feel so blessed to have had our paths cross in this earthly life, if even only for a brief time. I will always cherish our " trip to Roxbury " together, and the father and son in law talk. I will miss our Sunday sports , politics , and life talks. I feel so privileged to have gained a glimpse into your life. Most of all I will miss your coffee especially topping my cup off before I left for work. I carry does Sundays with me always. So rest in the peace and glory of our lord. Love you always G-Pa
