How do you describe a man who has the same name but you've never met. Father, grandfather, Casper the ghost. I hope you found peace in death ....after all you gave nothing to us

Wonderful grandfather is easy to achieve when you don't count half your grandkids...I'm glad he was amazing to 2 out of 5 by my calculations that's 40%.. I give him a F
