My dearest Daddy,
I was not ready for you to leave us. Your strong faith sustained you through the physical challenges. Your kindness, quick wit and genuine smiles will always be in my heart. Love you forever, Norma

You were always a good man to me. I always looked up to you. You were a hard working man, who loved his children and grandchildren. Probably, the toughest man I ever knew. I couldn’t have asked for a better grandpa in my life. You will greatly be missed. Rest easy grandpa and be with grandma again. I will see you again one day. Love you!
