Sorry for your loss, our loss. We were blessed that he was able to meet his great grandchildren prior to his death. They, and we, enjoyed our time with him when we could. He always had great stories to tell and he told them wonderfully, often with a twinkle in his eye about his trouble making boys (in their much younger years of course), and trucking stories. He is still greatly missed. Tony (Grandson) & Rachel McMichael & Kids (6).
