I wanted to tell you about the quote I put up on Grampa's Memory Board... I got it from Candice's letter grampa sent her years ago...
"As they say in the Canoe Club [Navy] it's time to drop anchor and bail out"
Everybody loved it...
Below are the Memory boards Sam's sister Tina made... they were perfect! She did a great job!
Below are Grampa's medal from WWII and Korea
Its Sunday and I am still pretty tired from the two day funeral... Catholics sure know how to make a funeral seem like a week long event!
I have a bunch of stories to tell about the two days but I am still kinda tired... My house is starting to get empty again... Collin just left to go back to Arizona to school, Pam [Sam's Cousin and her grandson Corey] just left also...

"I just wanted to say he was the best Grandfather any kid could ask for... he rode motorcycles with them until he was 82, skied Big Bear with them, took them hiking down the Grand Canyon, and never missed a birthday, 1st Holy Communion, Confirmation or any other important occasion...

Ok... Pam [Sam's cousin] and I were talking yesterday and her brother is going to talk at Grampa's funeral [I swear he is so good a public speaking and telling stories] and Pam said "Kendra you should too... you could print any one of your Grampa stories and it would be great" "I want to... I just dont know if I will get up there, get nervous and start crying my head off... If I knew I wasn't going to cry through the whole damn thing I would do it in a minute!"
So, I need extra special prayers from you guys... not to cry while giving the following speech...
Tell me what you think of it? What should I change?
My name is Kendra Silva. I am Sam Silva's wife and Clancy's daughter in law. I came into the Silva Family 24 years ago and over the course of that time I had many nicknames for Clancy...
That day Dad earned the nickname Mr. Magoo!
