COMRD VICTOR O. DESCRIBED HIS LATE GRANDPA AS A MAN OF GREAT CHARACTER.

A MAN OF GREAT CHARACTER

My grandfather was a man of great character, a wonderful intellect, a great soul of matchless courage, a quiet man,
But his silence could speak volumes.

The warmth of his gaze said, “I love you.”
The strength of his hugs said, “I will keep you safe.”
The gentleness of his hands said, “You’re precious to me.”
His nod of approval for a job well done said, “I respect you.”

In the years to come, I may not remember many of the words my grandfather spoke,
But the memories of what he conveyed without speaking a word will stay in my heart.

There are lots of other personal qualities that characterized Grandpa, some of which were so ingrained in who he was that you couldn’t think of him not exhibiting them (honesty, integrity, generosity). He was a man of deep spirituality who loved the God he served and who has left a legacy in the lives of those who knew him — that will endure for years to come. I know that I have been deeply impacted by his input into my life and I will miss him dearly. I had the privilege of knowing him for over 20 years, as my grandfather. His leaving the life on this earth has caused me to seriously reflect on my life and my priorities.

I hope that I will also become a man of great character.

Rest in peace Grandpa, you will forever remain green in my heart.
