  • He is my Pappa, he is my Grandfather, he used to be a farmer, that is how I remember him, not from the war because I wasn't born then! His daughter Sally is my Mum, her brother Micheal is my Uncle. I sure do miss my Grandparents. May they rest in peace, and I hope they both know I love them very very very much. Love your Granddaughter
