I think that it is the little things in life that make good memories. The day you passed, I was working for the neighbor, Heidi, doing some yard work. I so vividly remember her calling me in and telling me to go home to my Mom cause she needed me. Heidi seen he panic in my eyes and sadly told me that my Grandpa had just passed. I went home and then Mom and I were off to say goodbye to you. When we went to St. Jean's (private nursing home), the flag was flying at half-staff in your honor. When the door opened there was Prima (primary care giver) crying very hard and hugging my mom. I love Prima for the excellent quality care she gave you. We went to your room, you appeared so peaceful. I seen the balloon weight from the arrangement, I made for your bday a couple of years back. Your Chargers knit cap from Christmas past, I remember coming over to cut your hair, many times. Holding your hand while sitting with you, you'd smile and let out a little laugh. So many little things that bonded a Gpa and his Grandson. Your a good role model and I endeavor to be more like you. As you know, I haven't done the best job with my adult life and I'm in an intense program to straighten out my life. Gpa, I know that your a self-made man and worked very hard to have a good, stable, productive life and that's what I want. If I follow your step, I will achieve those things in life. Thank you for being in my life. Your the best Grandpa!
