Dear grandpa, There are so many memories I could share, and I could probably tell stories for hours. You have been my partner in crime and my best friend for so many years of my life. You have always showed me unconditional love and have probably loved me harder than any other family member. I know I am stubborn and difficult and sometimes don't always make the right choices. But I am glad you were always there to support me. The last few days have been less than easy and my heart is so sad. But when I think about all the fun times we have had growing up. It truly brings comfort. I will always remember weekends at the house on meadowlark. You would have CMT playing in the background and you would have breakfast cooking bacon, eggs, biscuits with strawberry jelly and my favorite waffles. I miss the times we would be rolling down the country roads listening to Willie Nelson and singing ON the Road again. I will always remember summers in Texas especially the time we got season passes to Hurricane Harbor and because there wasn't much time left in the summer you took off a whole week from work and we went everyday. You were the greatest riding water slides, roller coasters and all of the above. I will miss holidays when you knew how much I detested pumpkin and apple pie so you would always had a cherry pie hidden separate just for me. I will miss having a fellow Cowboys fan, and I will miss watching games with you. I would give anything in the world to watch one more with you. I would give anything for one more trip to Sams to have a hotdog and coke with you. I will miss you more than you can ever imagine and you will forever be in my heart and always on my mind. I hope even that you are no longer psychically present in this life, that you are always watching over me and that I can do nothing but make you proud. I love you grandpa Until we meet on the road again.
