Grandpas Funeral

This sweet man passed away July 25th, 2015. He was the best grandpa, and the best example. He taught me patience, love, hard work and so much more. I don't think anyone will ever realize the example and role model he was to me. I am grateful for the close bond we shared and from all the many memories he gave me. It will be different going to Utah and not being able to go see grandpa. I am glad I have the knowledge that families are eternal and that one day I will get to see him again. For now I have this wonderful guardian angel guiding me day by day. 


Here is his Obituary
Reed Junior Naisbitt
