Arrigo, whenever a newly arrived Packer fan finds his way into this den of iniquity, I usually launch into a diatribe on the evils of cheese.
But I shall forego that for now.

Reading the narrative of your Grandfather truly touched my soul.

A man may acquired many materialistic things in his passage through life, but nothing can compare with the true legacy of what values and influence he passes on when his journey is done.
And your Grandfather lived a very rich life indeed.
The well deserved respect and admiration that you give to him is a testament to a very good life lived.
No better epitaph can be given than "He was good and honorable man".

And it looks like that values that he instilled in you, are being carried on.

I can definitely say that it would have been a true honor to have met your Grandfather.


There are some very good and knowledgeable people here, even if the vast majority are Packers fans.
And welcome to this forum. It is a pretty good place, too many cheeseheads, but overall not too bad.

first of all - welcome to the site, joe!

secondly - thank you for sharing so much of yourself with us. as a woman, i thought it was a rare quality to find in a man. since joining this site, i have found that to be completely untrue.

and finally - i also lost the man who taught me morals, values, my love of the packers, how to work, & how to be a loving person. i share your pain & rejoice in your memories!

Don't let foster fool you.. I hate everyone here, and I'm no friend of you Pucker fans!!! =P

Great story man. I know how you feel about your gramps because I feel the same for my father. I love hearing 'old' stories about other's grandparents, because their stories are always so interesting to me. I love it.

Welcome to the site, and don't get razzed too much!
