I was not lucky enough to have met my grandfather, but from all that i have read and heard, it seems he was a polite, caring and respectful gentleman. It saddens me to think that the opportunity to meet him was so cruelly taken away. I am however, very proud to be associated with such a wonderful man. He will always be my hero.
