C.W. was such an amazing father, grandfather, great grandfather, husband and leader of his family. Every interaction I had with him was always so wonderful. He was always genuinely interested in everyone around him and his heart was larger than life! I'm truly going to miss him.
I love you, C.W......I know you're finally home to be with Nancy and Wally!
