I took my time trying to figure out exactly what to say. My grandfather was not a perfect man. He loved me, and I knew that, though, always. He never failed to tell me if, when I go back to finish university, I ever needed money I was to call him up.I never would have done that, but I appreciated the sincerity behind the offer. He always understood my health problems prevented me from doing things, and he never lost faith in me.He deserved better than to die afraid and broken in a hospital. We don't always get what we deserve--we often don't--but he deserved better than that.I treasure that I got to facetime him in the hospital. He was able to recognize me and tell me he loved me, and I was able to tell him the same. I will always treasure that.I want to thank my cousin Karen for taking such good care of him, as well as his beloved home help aide Patricia, who went above and beyond what she needed to.

Let me start by saying that I did not know Steve that well. I took care of him in the hospital for the past couple of weeks. But some patients leave an impression on you. He was one of those patients for me. Steve seemed like a kind and funny man. I truly enjoyed listening to his WWII stories each night when I came into work. I was there the evening he passed away and he went very peacefully in his sleep. You all have my deepest sympathy and will be in my prayers. Chrissy

Dad was a man of simple wants, and extremely shrewd and insightful to the motivations and actions of others. While he kept his own counsel, he did share with me, in the last several years, his feelings and insights regarding country, faith, friends, and every member of the family. I will always treasure the many hours of laughter and fun he gave our daughters Kate and Abby. They only asked his love and attention, which he freely gave. Dad ended every phone conversation with "I love you too", and so to Red Snyder I would say "I love you too, DadPatrice Brandt Snyder

Being over 70 in this COVID environment, I know that neither Jim, Donna nor I can travel safely until after the vaccines issue and will miss the viewing. I would share two lessons from Dad that served me well in life. Once when I screwed up, he asked me why I did what I did. I said "I didn't think" - he explained that he never gave me permission not to think. I also learned not to screw up. The second lesson is that from the time he qualified for his first vote in 1944 he, like most of his brothers, was a registered Democrat - viewing the Republicans as the party of the monied and the elite that had little use for labor or immigrant populations and he qualified on both counts. He voted the straight party ticket from FDR to the end - His mantra was that if D. O. G. ran for the Dems, he got his vote. I know that the results of 3 November put his mind at ease. His days started with Mika and Joe and ended with Chris Matthews, Rachel and Lawrence O'Donnel. I suspect he would have blocked Fox News if he could figure it out.Finally, his closest friend and companion in his last months was his niece Karen, who visited almost daily and kept him company. Patrice, I, and Uncle Paul all thank Karen for everything she did. She and Jim always had a special place with my father.Tom
