My Grandfather was the greatest influence in my life. With a kind word and a smile, he could make bad times easy and problems seem small.
After I said good-bye, I started replaying my memories, and the main scene that would not go away is the only time I can remember hearing him sing. It was just after we had purchased the baby grand piano, and Grandmother and Grandfather were singing "Try to Remember".
-Chad Lupkes - Grandson
