    Alexis and Family,

    The loss of somebody like a Grandfather who is the backbone of the family is very painful. I lost my Grandfather when I was about 4 years old, so I don’t have many memories of him. But what I do remember is that when he died, the family came together. Cousins, Uncles, Aunts, Family members that I had never seen before came together. Even family feuds stopped (Temporally). All in honor of him.
    I wish you and your family the same during this difficult time.
