    Dear Grandpa,
    You were the most amazing man I have ever met, known or ever encountered. I'm so lucky because not only did I know you, but I am related to you and as long as I am here so is a small piece of you. My one wish is that I had had children at a younger age so they had gotten a chance to meet you. Even though that will never happen now, they too, will have a piece of you in them, and I will tell them how wonderful you were. Thank you for teaching me so much, thank you for always being there for me, and thank you for showing me what a real man is. Thank you for everything. You were the Best Grandpa anyone could ask for. You are my inspiration. You are forever my hero. I LOVE YOU! May you rest in peace. Love always, Angie
