will miss Grandpa, I do not know why he would not talk to any of the family not long after grandma died, we were nice to him, and him to us as kids. He loved to serve us ice cream when we stayed at our grandma (Greenfield, Frederick) house. If any one knows the secret let us know thanks, Linda
I'm so sorry to hear about Loyal. He was a sweet man and a grandfather to me for awhile. We unfortunatly lost contact with him after my grandmother (Dessie Durst) died. God bless you all.
