Grandpa, I wish that I could have made it to the services and seen you one more time. I know you are in heaven. You were a great man. I wish that I could have seen you one last time before you passed. I miss you and love you. I enjoyed all the good times that we had. I wish we had more time to spend together. I look to the day we are in heaven together.

Dad:
I won't be able to be up there but I want you to know what a blessing you have been in my life. All the talks we shared meant so much to me. When I lost George, any time I wanted to talk you were there for me. Now I want to be there for my children. I'm so glad that God let you be my Dad cause now I'm closer to him because of you. I love you so much.
Your daughter Carol.
