I only got the chance to know you for a few months and although I can't remember any of it I know I loved you will all my heart. I grew up hearing amazing stories about how wonderful of a man you were, looking at pictures of you on our walls and even pictures of us in some photo albums. Grandma would always tell me all about what you we were doing in those pictures and how much you loved me and the rest of the family.
I wish I would have got more time with you, and grandma too. But I love you both very much and can't wait to see you again.
