So sorry to hear this about our Grandad! The kids and I loved him and we are praying for the family! He always treated the kids and I like we were family. I'm just now finding out because I'm not on social media and I feel so bad. I hate I couldn't tell him goodbye one last time. The kids are going to be sad especially Aj but we will always remember the good memories of our grandaddy!:pray::skin-tone-5:
