When I got the call Sunday morning gramps I just fell apart I didn't know what to do so angry at myself for not being able to get up there to see you in the last 3yrs not even once. From going and seeing you everyday whether it be cleaning up your house giving you your pedis that you loved so much or even just the days were we would go to breakfast so you could eat your oatmeal while I would get chicken fingers and then we would just go back to your house and talk for a few hrs. Then I heard you were moving it was then I felt like you were gone forever because I new it would be so hard with all four kids to see you all the time but then I got that horrible call and I realized what you actually being gone was like and it's just like when gram past a time in my life I wouldn't wish on my worse enemy to even have to experience. Well I love you so much gramps and I know you will still be here watching over me and my family please just show me that you are here with me...sometimes!? I love you grampa soooo much and I hope your resting easy <3 I'll be there thurs to see you!
