R.I.P. Grandpa Wood. I will forever miss you and have you in my heart, mind, thoughts and life. My daughter will always know you and about you. You are the most amazing person I have every met in my entire life and that will never change. You have changed my life for the better; I don't know what I would have done without you in my life grandpa. You would always tell me stories and give me life lessons. I share the love of baseball with you because of all the baseball games that you would watch with me explaining every detail of the game (most of the time it was a cubs game). It was always fun being able to come to the farm and spend time with you guys; I remember all the good times and memories and I will forever have those. You were such a good example for me Grandpa and I am so shocked that you are really gone. You were always there for me and were always the one to stand up for me and tell me all the good things about me. You were the one family member that I could always count on and know would believe in me no matter what I did in life. You were forgiving, caring, kind, loving, truthful, sweet, fun, happy, smart, hard-working, amazing in every way, thoughtful and could put a smile on anyone's face that you were around. I remember all the grandkids coming to hang out at your house all the time together and being able to garden with you. I remember walking down the street to see the cows and I remember cooking with Grandma. I love the way you eat your turkey bacon; I will always eat it the same way. Thank you for teaching me so many wonderful things about the temple, war, life, people and seriously really about everything. You were kind towards pets and people in more ways than I knew people could be. You are a prime example of how people should be and act; I wish that more people were life you Grandpa. Thank you so much Grandpa for who you are, were and will always be through my eyes. Thank you for being you! Sorry that this is so long I just love you so much Grandpa and will miss you more than words can even begin to say. Say hello to Larry, Crystal and Jessie for me. Love you forever and ever Grandpa!!!!!!!!!

My dad was such a caring and giving individual that can leave an impression on just about anyone. I cant ever remember a day when he wasnt supportive, and firm, which taught me alot about life. I loved him with all my heart. Im having a real hard time trying to figure out where I will get all the hours of advice that he gave me to steer me in the right direction throughout life.....I feel alone and not sure I will get it right without him. I hope that he is prepared for all the guidance I will be asking for through prayer and hopefully he will hear me as he always has before and I hope I hear him. Life will absolutely not be the same without him. Thank you dad for a lifetime of being there, I hope I lived up to all your expectations and do in the future. Love you so much.....Your son Jeff.
