I’ll miss you grandpa. I love you, and I’m thankful for you always being there and giving me advice and guidance when I needed it. You always set an example for me to follow, and I’m grateful for that. See you again someday.
What a wonderful man! The piano sitting in my living room is a 90+ year old player piano that Mr. Coyle restored! I remember most that he ALWAYS had a grin on his face and a chuckle right behind it. God bless you all at this time! May the Lord’s peace and comfort be with you.
