Grandpa Tapp

A couple of weekends ago my grandpa Tapp passed away unexpectedly on he and my grandma's 50th wedding anniversary. Last Thursday was the funeral. Rod and I have had our fair share of funerals in the last little while, but it was good to be together with my Dad's family who came up from St. George.

He was really into cars and he always had a fresh paint job on whatever car he drove, so they decided to give his casket a little "ice cream paint job" - and cover it with stickers from the movie "cars"
Here is a picture of me with him and my grandma when I was little - obviously during Easter
And here is a picture of him that we found while making his slideshow - I thought it was a pretty cool vintage shot with his bottle collection and that damask wallpaper in the background.
You will be missed Grandpa!

I was so sad to hear about your Grandpa. Grandma must have been anxious to have him by her side again.

What a cool paint job! I think it's so great that everything in your family is so personalized. It's just plain cool.

I love the vintage pic of your Grandpa. There's a lot of people that would pay a lot of money to have a wall like that now days.

Love ya!
