My grandfather was one of the biggest influences on my character growing up and even today. I am daily reminded of him through my own habits and thoughts. Many of the things I say and choices I make stem from my relationship with him growing up and even as an adult. He had a way of saying things that stuck with me for the rest of my life. He was wise, kind, and caring as well as strong both mentally and physically. Grandpa was a loving role model for the entire family and will be greatly missed for the remainder of my days.
