Great-Grandpa VDG

This morning Great Grandpa VDG passed away quietly after having a massive heart-attack yesterday. He was also battling cancer.

We remember him as a kind grandfather that was determined to help people all he could. He established a clinic in Calexico, CA where he made it possible for children in Calexico and Mexicali to receive free medical care. Here is an article with more about him:

We miss you already Grandpa! Grandma, you are in our prayers. We love you both!

Oh Wayne - we are sorry to hear of your grandfather's passing. Are you going to be able to make it to the funeral? The article on him was very kind. What a wonderful and kind man your grandfather is. We love you.

We are so sad we cannot. We wish we could. We were there in spirit. :) Thank you for your condolences.
