Joe's grandfather, Dave, died last Thursday, April 24th. Dave entered the hospital about a week before for some aphib, contracted pneumonia and wasn't able to make his way out of it. He died peacefully with his family around him.

I learned a lot about Joe's grandfather this weekend. While I've known him for 4 years, Joe told me he hasn't been himself since a surgery he had about 7 years ago. Dave was a Major in the army, a VERY loving husband, a man of many inspirational words, and someone who would do anything for the people he cared about. His obituary tells a little bit about his life, and I am sad that I didn't have the pleasure of getting to know the real him while he was still with us here on Earth.
Rest in peace, Dave. I know the family misses you, but you are in a better place right now, watching down on them, and smiling.
