Love you and will miss you, Granddad. I hear there's never a three-putt where you've gone and that all of your drives will be 300+ yards.....

No more Granddads..... damn.

Commiserations JPW. My grandad died a few years ago and I still miss him every day. Grandads leave a big hole in your life when they go. Take care.
