He Only Takes The Best

God saw he was getting tired a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around him and whispered "Come with Me". With tearful eyes we watched him suffer, and saw him fade away, although we loved him dearly, we could not make him stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

Grandpa I know we didn't get to see each other but once that I can remember, but that didn’t stop us from our phone conversations when I was a young child! I will never forget the time you sent me all the New Kids On The Block stuff for my room or when you got me my very first boom box with a New Kids On The Block cassette tape! I will always have my memories of talking to you on the phone for hours about random things like, how I wanted to be a break dancer because I loved how the Ninja turtles danced to Ice Ice Baby and how I had mastered spinning on my head and you laughing at me because i was so excited about it, or wanting a red convertible because I wanted to be like Barbie! All the books I read to you over the phone and you would just sit there and listen to me read! Then tell me how proud you were of me as my reading got better and better. I will never forget the conversations we would have while talking in a Donald the duck voice! Every phone conversation ended with I love you too Sweetheart! Your voice is permanently in my head and always will be. We may have been states apart but you where an amazing grandpa that would listen to anything and everything I wanted to talk about when I was younger! I love you Grandpa!!!

Dad we are going to miss you. I'm thankful for the time we got to hang out and talk about cars and motorcycles. I sure hope they have hot rods in heaven so we can cruise the streets of gold. Love you always.
