I know that no matter what you will always be with me. When life separates us I'll know it is only your soul saying goodbye to your body but your spirit will be with me always. When I see a bird chirping on a nearby branch, I will know it is you singing to me. When a butterfly brushes gently by me so care free, I will know it is you assuring me you are free from pain. When the gentle fragrance of a flower catches my attention, I will know it is you reminding me to appreciate the simple things in life. When the sun shining through my window awakens me, I will feel the warmth of your love. When I hear the rain pitter patter against my window sill, I hear your words of wisdom and will remember what you taught me so well that without rain trees cannot grow, without rain flowers cannot bloom and without life's challenges I cannot grow strong. Thank you for being the best Grandfather that a child could ever have.
