I love you Grandpa. Even though I've gotten the chance to meet you I feel like you've taught me so much! Your legacy lives on through your son Steve who is the greatest man, father and grandfather! I know you would be so proud of him. He misses you so much. Thank you for always letting me know you're with me whether it's playing Shooting Star at all the right times or flashing a 1247 somewhere. I'm sure Grandma is so happy to finally be with you. One day we will all be together. Love you!
