21 September 2021
I remember and appreciated so much about GPA. We loved the same alcohol, football team (9ers!), politics, and going the coast. Whenever we got together his smile and laughter was intoxicating itself. I remember that he would NEVER let me pay for dinner and he would even get mad at me when I would try to take the bill. One time I did without him knowing and we all laughed because he was always so adamant about it. I remember always asking him if he needed any help with anything and usually he would say no because he was so stubborn and independent that he would like to do it himself. I would insist and tell him, "CALL ME!" One time he did and I was so happy that I would get to help him and he just wanted me to help with the move the gazebo and I was happy. He told me that he would do the rest and I was like, "that's just GPA, he loves to work and was very task oriented" and I loved that about him. He asked me if I wanted to go hunting with him in Colorado close to his last time and I was honored even though I couldn't get the tags for years because there was a waiting list. He always made me feel honored and welcomed into his beautiful family. I remember taking him to Sacramento him and Gma for some surgeries and I felt so honored to spend time with him and that he called on me to take him. I loved that about him. He would smile and brighten your day and make you feel special and honored in his presence. I am sad that the fear of him getting sick from covid kept his last years apart more than we wanted but I cherish ALL the memories that we had and hope he is looking down on us and knows how many lives he influenced through his grace and dignity. When I first heard all I could do was think about us dancing together as couples on the Tahoe Queen and all the other memories we have made together. He has a place in my heart and he will never be forgotten. I love you Gpa. Always and forever.
