Grandpa I'm going to miss you so much but I'm happy to know that you are no longer suffering or in pain and that you and my grandma are together again. I know she missed you and she's been waiting on you for 4 years now. Now y'all will be together FOREVER. Love you grandpa and I will never forget you. Thank you for always being there for us and always praying for us.

As a kid growing up i always had nightmares. I’d feel the safest when grandpa would pray over me. He’d tell me everything would be okay because I have God with me. You were the strongest person ever welo. That’s one of the best things you and grandma had in common. I’m so glad that i got to see you guys grow together. I’m glad to have had you guys in my life for 19 years. I know you both are watching over us all from heaven. 💛
Grandpa I’ll never forget the day we were eating chorizo tacos at Yolie’s house when you told me you were proud of my siblings and I. That’s something that will stick with me forever! I’ll continue making you proud! I love you!! Until we meet again
