The picture is one of my favorites, Pam. It shows a young man full of love for his family and others. He was a gentle soul and I miss him even today.

What an awesome photo. I can't help but think that someone will run across this entry sometime and find it's the person they are looking for...How are you related to him?

He is my grandpa. I went to live with him and my grandma when I was ten. He was the sweetest man on earth, along with my father and my uncle Raymond! He was my mother's father. Thanks, JoLyn, for your sweet comments.
