  • I never got to meet you but I am proud to be your grandson. I was born in America but moved back to New Zealand to raise my family and continue the family legacy here. Thank you for your service and for having my father, he loves you dearly and misses you. You're about to become a great-grandfather. I hope you're with Grandma Connie in heaven.
