Aimee Goans

I get sad as I think that I will never write my Papaw another thank you note. Just today, I thought about this and found an old card Papaw sent for my birthday. It reads"Happy Birthday Maude Aimee Grandma and I love you to the moon and back and are so proud of you." Just thinking about all the times Papaw told me he was proud of me makes me get teary eyed. It is sad knowing he'll never say that to me again until I reach heaven which won't be until a long time goes by. I wish I could see him again and give him a hug. I also wish I would receive a face time call too. I'm really gonna miss my grandpa. Just the other day, I went for a bike ride. I remember how Papaw would walk with me and Eddie down the street and I learned to ride my bike. I loved my grandpa. I still can't obtain in my brain that he's gone. I wish he was still here. I wish I could've told him one last time that I loved him and that I was proud of him. I have so many great memories of Papaw. These are just 2 of the thousands of thousands.
