Although I never got the chance to meet you, I think about you all the time. Grandma, Dad, and Jill miss you very much, and I know that you would be very proud of what they’ve accomplished because I know I am. We miss you, and there is not a day that goes by that we don’t wish we could see you. One day we will get the chance to meet, and I know when that day comes it will be special. I love you
