Grandad today I miss you a lot because all I have left is memories that I will cherish forever. I’m going to miss that smile I see every time I walk thru your door and the tightest hug you gave me to let me know your love is pure. It seems like yesterday we all were just together. I guess I have to realize that gone means forever.
Love your granddaughter Mariah
