    Uncle Babe was always around helping my father with his auto repair projects. It was always nice when he came down to visit my parents and take time out for coffee. Sorry we won’t be able to be there for the rest of the family, but please know our thoughts and prayers are with you, as it doesn’t seem that long ago that I lost my father too.

    I remember my grandpa telling stories about Model-A’s and being up at camp. My grandpa loved being up at camp, playing with all us kids, and he loved to tease us and make us laugh. Even though I will not be able to be with my family physically for the celebration of his life, I will be with everyone with my heart. I love you all. Be strong for Grandma. Grandpa Waeghe use to take me into his garage when I was little and tell me all about what project he was doing at that time. I would ask a question about his Model A and he would tell me all about my question with about 3 stories. Grandpa has a passion for machines and a love for Ford. When I would watch my Uncle Terry and Grandpa talk about engines I learned the whole process of mechanics is trial and error. Thank you Grandpa for everything that you have taught me and I will still be asking you questions when I’m working on my truck unless its a Ford cause then a typical Ford does not have to be worked on. 🙂

    What do you say about the man that raised you and taught you about all the good things in life. I love my dad with all my heart and the best tribute that I can leave is a poem I wrote about him. Here it is:

    A beautiful sunrise, a setting sun, a walk in the woods, a days work is done. Getting up ealy to hear the birds sing, and catch all the wonders each day would bring. The sound of childrens laughter sure made him smile, he’d stop and get lost in a thought for awhile. A penny for your thoughts he would sometimes say, if he would catch us daydreaming on any given day. Cars and Truck were more than a passion, they were his life and it brought the cash in. Sunday rides were always so fun, reading signs backwards or seeing deer on the run. Counting the Fords as they went on by, the rest were just junk so they didn’t apply. Learning to drive, now that was a treat, with the ’54 Monster and mighty shaky feet. With patience and practice he taught us all, not only about driving but about life in general. The camp in Osier, “Rocky Acres” he wants it to be is where you’ll find peace and quiet and serenity. The man we’re talking about is none other than Dad, and the one thing we learned is NEVER make him mad. We love you Dad, we will ’til the end, when one by one we’ll be a family again.

    Let me tell you of a story bout a man named Ed, He bought a camp in Osier and he thought it was a shed,Next thing ya know his daughters moved in, couldn’t do nothing cuz they was kin, Belgian that is, Yoopers, Pyromaniac’s! Well the next thing ya know, there draggin in the Deer, didn’t know how to gut ’em so they cut ’em from the ear, brother says “I’ll gut ’em if ya bring the heart here!” Fry it up with onions, mushrooms, and Beer, wild game, hard to tame. The end of September we have a birthday bash, it’s a tradition that will last,and last, and last. So come have a toast to Ed and his Shed, and We guarantee you’ll be very well fed. You all come back now, Ya hear !!

    Grandpa made me the tomboy I am. I will always remember sitting in the garage and helping grandpa work on the cars,motorbikes or anything that had a motor! The last time I was with grandpa he was teaching me how to stretch the top to a Model A he was rebuilding! I had to laugh at him, I wanted to say I’ve grown to a woman and not a tomboy any more and realized the sparkle in his eyes and how happy I was to be back in the garage again with my Grandpa! I gave grandpa a big hug that day before leaving back to Arizona and he hugged me right back. Found out later that wasn’t Grandpas thing. I had to giggle about that…Grandpa Waeghe was always the one person I have admire the most! Grandpa will always be beside me and in my heart no matter where I am! I love you Grandpa with all my heart and Soul:)
