Grandpa Pill, I know you're in better place but I miss you already. My get togethers aren't going to be the same without you there. I used to have so much fun with you when we were little and lived with you. I'm glad I got to spend your final years with you. You had a lot of great stories and my little Hailee loved to come visit you at the nursing home. Love you!

The crazy fact that when you were very young, you and some friends visited Burritts Rapids in Canada. l remember, maybe in ,2007, after l had moved to Canada, you saying, I went there once with my friends. What was that town? Burritts... Burritts.. And l said Burritts Rapids?! , And Papa Norm said , ,"yes,!," He described the historic locks, where the library was. Burritts Rapids has a population of maybe 300. After that. He called me Canada.

Papa Norm, So many memories, from you gathering all of us kids, accusing that one of us had "boaped,," sending us out of the room, one by one, lol, to see who the culprit was. (I think it was always you.) Then, way later, after I moved to Canada. You already were having a bit of a hard time remembering who was who. But... you said, l went to Canada with some friends once. What was the name of that town? Burritts... Burritts.. And I said "Burritts Rapids?!" And you said "Yes!" And you went on to describe the locks, how they were man operated, and still are to this day. You described where the library was (is), and how the girl who lived next to the library had a crush on you. She still lived there when we moved to Canada. So incredible. Burritts Rapids is so tiny. Population less than 300. After that you always called me Canada. Didn't remember a lot of people, but because of that connection, l was Canada. I love you. You're a hero.

Grandpa Pillinger, I loved staying with them when I was young. As an only child, I enjoyed swimming and just loved being there. He was a very tentative father, always the best for the kids. He was smart and funny, such a great honored gentleman. All my love, Grandpa Sandy Pillinger All my love, Sandy Pill
