His generosity towards his neighbors and his love for God was evident in how he lived. A loving grandfather who demonstrated how to treat others. He inspired us to be better human beings than we were yesterday and it is in his honor that this foundation was formed.
After my grandfather's passing, continuing his work through a legacy project was my dream. In 2017 that dream became a reality and has become my drive. God has blessed GIVE with people with a great heart and the resources to assist and change lives. Looking forward to sharing this journey.
