  1. I love you Dad-you and Mom have fun together and don’t worry about us. Until we see you again-Love Karen

  2. Lots of fun memories from my teen years in Huntington Beach with GPA and GMA. Loved the conversations and the Lion’s Club dinners, the omellettes in the morning with “everything in the refrigerator in it” along with appropriate cocktails. We poured over family pictures, talked about everything. GPA always had a map for wherever we were going along with advice to avoid traffic. Loved the grapefruit trees in Temecula (although GPA did not) and rides in the golf cart. He always had a great story and his home was always welcome to me and my family. I will cherish all of the memories and especially the last one on April 9th. I feel truly fortunate to have had that last visit. I love you and will miss you.
