    Zeke, I am so glad I got to Facetime you and you finally told me "I Love You"! Only took you 49 years, 5 months before I wore you down! I know you would appreciate that humor. I get that from you. Also glad that you made it back to "The Hill, before you kicked the bucket!" as requested. I will miss you immensely and I am so proud to call you my grandpa!
