I love you and miss you so grandpa! I wish you were still alive with us all. I didn't know you that long and you passed when I was 2. But I feel like I've known you forever. Mom still tells me stories about you and we both cry together every time hehe. I am 13 and doing good in school and have all A's. I think you would be proud. We all love you and miss you. I'm crying right now just writing this. I love you so much grandpa.
