My Grandpa passed away this last Tuesday.  My mom volunteered herself along with me to help put pictures together to display at the funeral.  It was such a treat as I've never seen any of these pictures before.  Or even any of my grandparents from their early years.  I thought I'd share just a few of my favorites.

Grandma and Grandpa, Driggs, Idaho.  I think about 1945(?).   Not quite married.

Grandpa served in the military for 2 years.  First in Camp Roberts, CA and later in both Germany and Torino, Italy.  Just as he was called to the front lines, the war ended.

 Grandpa home on furlough:

My Grandpa came from a teeny, tiny town in Idaho.  Love his cowboy hat.

I love that first picture of them together.

I am doing the same thing... Only pics of my gay uncle instead... Slightly disturbing:)

Hope everyone is doing well with the funeral. I'm sure he'll be missed.

I love these pictures! I got to help out with Grandpa G's pictures, and I was so grateful for it! They were great men, who did great things for our country and for our generation! I'm sorry you had to loose him! love you Ang!
