    After a rough few years battling heart problems my grandfather or as we called him, Papa, passed away yesterday. He went peacefully in his sleep while taking his afternoon nap.
    He was a great father and grandfather to us all and a great man. A WWII Marine veteran who battled on Iwo Jima for our freedom and my best fishing buddy for alot of years. He worked hard all his life and never really ever retired. He can rest now. Please send prayers for my grandmother as today is the first day in 62 years she is without him. I am flying out tonight to go spend a few days with her. Thank you:sad2:

    Sad to hear that sort of thing.Like U said he can rest now without pain.
    He'll be looking down on you from up above and laughing at or with U ever time U miss or catch the fish of your dreams. Sounds like U have some very fond memories of a very good man.
    Will keep your Grandmother /U and rest of the family in our thoughts and Prayers.Stay strong for Grandma.
