I saw him give profit sharing to his employees, even in the lean years. I saw him offer tuition reimbursement and I saw him continue to pay terminally ill employees well after they left his charge.
There is something about this that I find grand, so unbelievably huge for a person to hold forth.
Your Opa sounds like an amazing person. You are so very lucky to had him in your life.
Condolences, and stay strong.
