"Grandpa today marks 3 years of your passing. 3 years that I have not been able to hug and laugh with you. 3 years that I have missed you constantly everyday. 3 years my heart has hurt for you. 3 years I have prayed to God that you are happy and safe and watching over us.3 years that I have stared at the baby blue skies wondering if somewhere through the clouds, those are your baby blue eyes watching over us. 3 years of hoping Grandma is going to be okay without you by her side. 3 years of missing a piece to my heart. 3 years of hearing our song and holding back the tears. 3 years of every morning on my way to work thinking of you when I see the sun rise. 3 years of passing gingersnaps, donuts,or sweets somewhere and thinking of you. 3 years of every coffee I drink is in memory of you and the mornings I would visit with you and Grams and we'd talk while Grams cooked for us. 3 years of looking at my baby girl and remembering the times you held her in your big hands, just the way you held me when I was young. 3 years of wishing you could be there in person at all of our future happy times. 3 years of looking at your picture and trying to console myself; trying to tell myself that you are still there even though I can't see you. 3 years of feeling your warmth and love surround me in my heart instead, when I call out to you. 3 years of remembering the advice you gave before you passed. 3 years of remembering the last words you said. 3 years of remembering that last warm touch of your hand. 3 years of remembering your last words. 3 years of rembering your last breath. 3 years of visiting you every chance I get. 3 years of seeing your name written in stone. 3 years of grieving for you. 3 years wishing this was a bad dream. 3 years wanting my Grandpa back. 3 years of tears and pain. 3 years of believing and having faith that I will see you again.I love you and miss you every day Gramps."

"When I am gone, release me – let me go
I have so many things to see and do.
You must not tie yourself to me with tears
Be happy that we had so many years. I gave you love,
you can only guess, how much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love each have shown,
but now it is time I travelled alone.
So grieve awhile for me if grieve you must,
then let your grief be comforted by trust
It is only for a while that we must part
so bless those memories within your heart.
I will not be far away, for life goes on.
so if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you cannot see or touch me, I will be near
And if you listen with your heart, you will hear
All of my love around you, soft and clear.
Then when you must come this way alone,
I will greet you with a smile and “Welcome Home”
When I Am Gone – By Unknown Poet

I feel so blessed to have know such a warm, sweet man.  You will be missed."

"I love you Grandpa and miss you terribly. I don't know what we're going to do without you but I know you are happy and in a better place. I will always be your "Brown Eyed Girl"  I will always think of the beautiful memories we had and all the talks we'd have. Grandpa my heart is crushed, but I am trying to be strong for you. I know you don't want us to be sad. Grandpa you are such a beautiful person everyone loves you."
