Dear Dad,
I have been spending every Tuesday and Thursday with you this summer. Our times together were so precious to me. You have always been and always will be my hero. I did not realize that last Thursday would be my last day with you. We went to the barber shop for a haircut, lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings with a practice session of blackjack as we were planning to go up to Central City soon and finally a drive to Loveland to look at the irrigation waters. Such a simple day but yet so perfect. I have been blessed by your wisdom and love throughout my life. These mere words cannot express the depth of my love for you and the depth of my sadness from your sudden departure from our lives. Rest In Peace and may a band of angels accompany you to thy rest.

The last dinner I had with my Grandpa was in June. My brother hosted dinner at the farm house, my great grandma Monica's home. He moved in earlier this year and we talked about having Jan and Grandpa Jerry over for dinner when he got settled in. We thought it would be special, but had no idea exactly how special this dinner would be to us. As we sat and had dinner we talked about memories. My dad, Brad, also joined us for this dinner. It was good food and good conversation. After dinner Grandpa Jerry started to play ball with the dog and he was just joyfully content. It was as simple as that. Before leaving we decided to take a picture holding Monie's Place sign. As far as final memories go, I'd say I'm pretty lucky. RIP Grandpa. I love you.
