This is my birth father's dad. My dear grandpa Herman Emanuel Verro. Grandpa was 84 when he passed away. He was not a man of many words unless he had something important to say. He was a sweet man and we all knew he loved us and would do anything for us. Grandpa was a pipe fitter.

Staying at our grandparents house was so wonderful when we were little. My brothers Carl, & Arthur, and my sister Carla Mae and I spent every weekend with them. Grandpa and grandma took us out to parks and out for milkshakes. It was then I found out I hated strawberry shakes. I would sit the shake all over the place only to have grandma or grandpa to bring it back to me. I didn't want to hurt their feeling and tell them I hated it.

My grandpa had a garden and he loved radishes and green onions. He would pluck them out of the ground and wash one of each off for me. I hated them so bad but I smiled and ran off with them to hide the horrible things. I hate them to this very day.

I was about 17 years old when I found my grandpa again. I was only 9 when I last saw him before my adoption. He was still a soft spoken man. He never raised his voice but a couple of times in his life. I once heard him very upset with someone and he told them off. He said something to the effect "You filthy, dirty, rotten, no good snake in the grass. I thought it was so funny I remembered it all throughout the years.

My grandpa died in 1974. He was so out of it in the hospital he did not know anyone was in the room. I spent hours everyday with him. The last time I went I kissed him and touched his face for I knew the end was near. The nurse told me he was pretty bad and they did not expect him to get better. Rest in peace my sweet grandpa, your children and family still talk with love about you.

I am putting a link to me because the doctors think I wont live much longer. At first I didn't want to know but I guess they think it will be around April. Granddaughter Ann
