Spending summers and weekends with my grandparents were some of the best times of my childhood. RIP grandpa

We will always treasure the memories made selling side by side at flea markets; and all of the stories swapped over coffee at the kitchen table. Don't know what was better - the stories or the accompanying sweets that Shirley baked! RIP
