  1. I remember when I first met him, he was so nice and sincere. I remember when he helped teach me how to play "Buy It". He almost always won the game when he came to our house to play cards, even if he forgot which hand we were on, he should shuffle his cards around and still win the round…I will also never forget last year when he told me he was planning on riding his motorized bicycle to my house using the side streets. He told me he could go 40 mph on that thing :blush: I learned a lot from him. I learned how to play dice, how to grow trees and I even learned some dirty jokes! He was quite the character but always the nicest man. You could tell how much he loved his family, especially his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Rest in peace Grandpa Bill, I will miss you :purple_heart:

  2. The amount of memories of grandpa are endless he was always making us laugh. When i was younger their wasnt anyplace he could go without taking me i always wanted to go with him didnt matter if it was just to the store or down to galt to buy some new birds it was always and adventure. One time josh and i were with him and anyone who knows him knew he liked to tell you where he put the sewer in around sacramento which was cool to hear just not when you are on a freeway on ramp and he comes to a stop just to point it out but that was grandpa. I will miss him everyday and will cherish the memories i have r.i.p i love you grandpa.
