rest in peace Grandpa Cy

Grandpa Cy passed away last night. He was just 1 month short of 100 years old. Patrick, Cy and I were lucky enough to visit him on his last day. He opened his eyes and stared at us for a while. He tried to speak a bit to us. I definitely felt like he knew we were there and I will always cherish those last moments. We are probably heading up to the cottage for a bit where we will be surrounded by memories of him. Funeral is Saturday in Milwaukee. Burial is Monday. Rest in peace Grandpa Cy.

Hi Jill, Patrick and Cy... love to your family. My dear grandpa Ab passed away today. Not quite 100, but a few months shy of 90. Its amazing what the pillars of a family hold up. Best thoughts to you all, Mandy and family.
