I can still see that sweet smile and hear that contagious laugh! He was what men, husbands, fathers, grandfathers are supposed to be like. I will miss him, and I know he's in Heaven with Uncle Ira, Aunt Alva, Jack, Uncle Oscar, Aunt Juanita, Daddy and Mother and all the rest of the Branch family and they are having a grand old reunion!! I do look forward to meeting up with them soon!
