My grandpa Heimbecker was the greatest man to ever walk foot on the planet, in my eyes. He taught me more about Integrity and Unconditional love than anyone else ever has. I miss you so much grandpa!!! I just want to hug you and say goodbye. You were taken from me on the day before my 16th birthday, and I've literally never been the same. I struggle a lot with you being gone. I wish I had your confidence. I wish I had your character. I wish I had you!! I love you so very very much! You had a definite affect on my life!
