Grandma, Grandpa had such a kind gentle heart that anyone that met him could see and feel the warmth of his grace. God is blessed us to have known such a special man who gave us such a special gift, himself. He will will always be with you in spirit and the memories you have can never be taken away. I know Grandpa will forever be close to my heart and it has been an honor to grow up thru the years with such a special person. I love you with all of my heart, Michelle

Truman, You will be truly missed by all who have known you over your lifetime. You are the last of a legacy of Grandfathers I have had in my life. It was a blessing to have known you and a shame that your Great-Grandson Noah couldn't have gotten to know you better. Much love... Enjoy your peace.
