  • Grampa,

    So many unanswered questions…why? We all miss you so much…so many “what if’s”…you where loved by so many people and touched so many lives…I just don’t understand. I cherish all of the memories that we had together…you where such a fun person to be around…you where the light of the party. With you being gone I now realize how important it is to tell the people that have made an impact on your life that you love them and hug them like it was your last time seeing them….I know that you’re in a better place and watching us…I love you with all of my heart. I’ll see you up there! ;


    Love your granddaughter,
