"Grand Pa Schneider" was curious and adventurous. He wanted to know more about us, our life, background. So he and grand-ma jumped on the plane and came to New York to visit us. Carolyn was also with them. We had a wonderful time when we went for local sight seeing, watched a movie in the afternoon. He ventured in to spicy Indian food :) and took interest in the little things we have in our house from different countries. He also looked at old family pictures. He was very proud of his children and grand children. He was very happy when Jen joined the gathering at our place. It is our good fortune to have shared some wonderful time with you Grand Pa Schneider. We will miss you.
