Grandpa it's slim pickins, I wanna say I love you so much. your one of the greatest men I know, your a fighter that's for damn sure, look you proved the doctors wrong when they gave you 4 months to live you fought so hard and lived and extra 2 years. you did what ever it took to support your family even when you were in your early 70's you were still out there working not a lot of people can say they did that but guess what you can. I'll never for get the times we spent together when I was a little boy, from the times we always went fishing from the times you took me up north to the cabin to go hunting, and all the times we hung out at the bar when you would have a beer and and I would always order my mini tacos then you would teach me how to play pool. plus I'll never forget the times we would always play chess for hours on end on your glass chess set. your the best grandpa any grandson could ask for and they took you away from me. I feel like I failed you as a grandson but just know I'm going to make you proud why your watching me from up above. I'm sorry grandpa I love you so much I'll never forget you pepa. your the best Love your grandson D.J

On our way home we stopped at the β€œlibrary” (AKA-bar) , i hobbled in and we sat at the bar - you ordered two lemon drop shots... and another, and another, and then I hobbled out , for more than one reason but wasn’t focusing on my ankle any longer (until the next day)πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ - I love you dad and you will forever be in my heart!!! Until we meet again, shot in hand!! πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜
