I will miss you everyday paw-paw. I look forward to seeing you again someday, free from all the suffering you had to endure these last few years. You are the toughest person I know, and I watched you handle your suffering with unbelievable strength and resolve, just as you handled everything in life. You taught me to work hard, treat people with respect, and most importantly, to love my family and enjoy their company every chance I get. You were a great man, and I can only hope to reach the standard you have set for me. I love you Paw-paw. Rest in peace.
