To my Grandma first, I am sorry for your loss and I will be there for you as much as I can.
To my Pops,
I think of you everyday and often. I am constantly thinking I want to call my Pops or I need a hug Pops " my day is not going so good". I really miss you and feel like I will never really be whole or the same ever again. I know you are in a better place now with no suffering but that is the only thing that gives me comfort through all of this. I still can't believe that you are gone! It happened to quick for me. I go to the house and see your chair empty and have to remind myself that you are not here anymore. And if someone is sitting in your spot I want to tell them to move because you will be coming in or don't move your stuff. Just because it is habit. I would give anything to have you back for just a moment to get a hug, tell you I love you and I sure hope you are proud of me. I am having a harder time with this then what I thought I guess. And it seems like ever since you started getting really sick my luck has gone down hill and still is going down hill. With all that has happened all I want is a hug from you and you to tell me it will all get better if you keep your positive attitude. I keep listening to my heart to see what you would tell me. I sure hope I am doing the right thing right now. I love you so very much grandpa and I will miss you as long as I live. There will not be a day and hour that goes by that I wont think about you or miss you.
Love your girl
