"i know its not his birthday or anything but everyday is very special when you have the Greatest Grandpa ever when it comes to him. I talk about him a lot at school and every time i do i don't know i just feel that he is looking down on me a smiling at the pride he has when seeing me that i am at least doing better. I cry almost every night thinking of him and the great times we have had together. I know i cant relive them but i do know that i can only remember them and hope to live them again some day in the future. I miss and Love you Grandpa. I cant wait to see you again!

"My daddy was a good and very smart man and everybody who ever knew him was better for it. I am thankful that he got to spend so much time with my children because he taught them more than I ever could have. I could not have done most of my life without him. Not a day goes by that i don't miss him and I took that for granted. I miss you daddy."
