Grandpa Tobe

This wonderful man who our little Tobe is named after passed away yesterday morning.  He is Brett's grandpa but I love him as if he were my own.  When Brett wanted to name our son after him I didn't hesitate.  He is the most kind, funny, generous man.  He reminded me a lot of my own Grandpa Ralph with his wit and sense of humor.  I only hope Tobe grows up to be like him.
We will miss you Grandpa Tobe but I'm sure you are enjoying a sweet reunion right now:)!!

I just love the pictures that you put on of Tobe and grandpa. He will be missed, but I am so happy that he doesn't have to just 'endure' this life any more. I know that he is in a better place and so happy to be with grandma.

You are very lucky to have been blessed with both a Grandpa Tobe and a Grandpa Ralph. I have heard so many great stories from Dawn about your Grandpa Ralph, and if Grandpa Tobe is similar to him, then your are so blessed to have been able to have them both in your life. I am sorry to hear about your loss, though. Losing special people is hard. I am thinking of you and wishing you comfort. AH
