I have such fond memories of my grandfather! Me and my brothers and sister always felt very special around him. I've always known and felt how much he loved each of us in his own way. He will be truly missed on this world. I shall miss you so very much. I so wish I was there there to say my goodbyes. It's time to go home...grandpa.
