If you follow the link above, it takes you to a tribute page.  There are additional pictures and sweet, kind words about my grandpa.  My cousin and I went through a bunch of old photos and picked out some of my grandpa from when he was in the Army.  
They are really neat pictures.  
Something well cherish even more now.

Living Life

Life is not a race - but indeed a journey. Be Honest. Work Hard. Be Choosy. Say "thank you", and "great job" to someone each day. Go to church, take time for prayer. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh. Let your handshake mean more than pen and paper. Love your life and what you've been given, it is not accidental ~ search for your purpose and do it as best you can. Dreaming does matter. It allows you to become that which you inspire to be. Laugh often. Appreciate the little things in life and enjoy them Some of the best things really are free. Do not worry, less wrinkles are more becoming. Forgive, it frees the soul. Take time for yourself ~ Plan for longevity. Recognize the special people you've been blessed to know. Live for today, enjoy the moment. ~Bonnie Mohr

There is nothing like the love of a grandparent and losing them can shake you to your very core. I pray that God will comfort you in your time of grief. Big bear hugs (and copious Starbucks!).
Love,
Shilo

I'm sorry for your loss, saying good-bye to my Pop-Paw was one of the hardest things I've done!

I love the pictures, I love how proud he was to serve our country and his rolled jeans!

Peace to you and your family!
