    I love you Grandpa! You were the greatest Grandpa ever! I loved spending time with you! You always made me laugh. I’m glad you got to meet my daughter before you passed. I wish I could have more time with you but I know you will be waiting for all of us on the other side. I can’t wait until that day cause I will finally be able to see you not in pain. I will think about you everyday and tell my daughter all about you!
