Grandpa

I will miss talking to you on the phone. I wish I have gotten to know you better. I don’t remember too much about you except your wonderful funny personality and when I was little you would always give us reece cups and when ever someone gives me one or I see one I always think of you. I love you and will see you on the otherside. May God rest your soul.

Love

Tina

I CAN REMBER SO MUCH ABOUT GRANDPAP THAT I CAN MOST LIKELY WRITE A SHORT NOVEL. I WAS A PAIN IN THE BUTT TO HIM I WOULD CALL HIM ALL THE TIME JUST TO SEE IF HE WAS OK BUT NOW THAT WILL BE HARD NOT TO CALL HIM BUT I KNOW THAT I CAN STILL TALK TO HIM BY LOOKING UP TO THE SKY AND TALK TO HIM GRANDMA AND KEITH. HE IS SURELY MISSED
