To Grandpa Hugh with love.....I hope you know how incredibly important you are, how much you have touched our lives with your thoughtfulness, your calls to check up on us, your gifts, bottles of wine, ice cream treats....we have so many great memories of time and moments with you in our memory banks.

From the time when you were the first to show up after the birth of our babies and babysitting them when Ezra got angry at you and stood in the closet and pulled out all the profanity he could possibly think of at age two and you just chuckled and calmed him down.... to taking out me and the kids once a week to McDonalds and the Childrens Museum.

You have poured SO much life into us and we are so grateful. Thanks for taking the time to share with us the mistakes and heartaches of your past so that we might learn from you, thanks also for sharing all the wonderful memories of the exciting adventures you've been on....but most of all thanks for always loving us so completely and unconditionally always choosing to see the very best in us!! Thanks for always showing us completely how much potential we have and to never give up on any dreams that we may have!!

Thanks for your strength, encouragement and your big hugs!!

We love you and we are SO blessed to call you Grandpa.......never forget that!!

Love you big, huge much!!
Love Me, Conrad and the kids
