I will always cherish the memories we shared together . You were a wonderful papa and grandpa to all of your grandkids. I will carry your legacy with them always.
You were like a father to me and you treated me like your daughter and you took such good care of me and I will always remember that.
Give granny a big kiss for me.
Until we meet again.
