I remember on Christmas what all of us kids were opening presents there was a ring on the doorbell grandpa had me and my two brothers answer the door saying it was someone pranking us, and when we open the door it was three brand-new shiny red bicycles sitting there for me and my brothers, I couldn't believe it because me and my brothers have been want bikes for a long time but my mother couldn't afford them because we were so broke and for him to notice take initiative and get us the bikes all three at once it meant the world to me and I always remember that growing up as a kid I love you so much Grandpa you know you was the straw that stirs the drink in our fam I can only hope that you go upstairs in heaven make a big impact as you didn't our lives in all the angels lives in heaven. I love you so much.
