Grandpa, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything that you have done for me. You have taught me countless lessons of life that I will cherish forever. You have showed me how to be loving, kind, and giving. I am so much like you, Grandpa, I see myself in you. Although we were both quiet, we knew how to speak to each other in other ways. Through body language and each other's comfort, we managed to build a strong relationship that is unexplainable to anyone. We were so close and our bond will live on forever. Although you are in Heaven now, you will stay with me in my heart always. There is so much that I wanted to share with you. I wanted to show you that I will get my degree soon, I wanted you to walk me down the aisle. I wanted you to meet my children and I wanted to hear you say, "baaaby" when you met them. Most of all, I want to make you proud. I am proud and truly blessed to call you my Grandpa. You raised me and therefore, you are my father. Yes, my heart may be broken, but when I think of all of our memories together, my heart smiles. Thank you for being my best friend, my hero, my teacher. I love you very much, Grandpa. You will never be forgotten. Forever you will live in my heart and be apart of me.
