My house feels empty without you. There are so many things you taught us. So many things we will miss, the stories of your life, the train whistle, just seeing you in the morning and you asking me if we could go get you favorite food. I will always Love You . I know you are in a better place, but my heart is still heavy. I LOVE and MISS you DAD.

It still doesn't seem real and I know life will never be the same without you physically here with us. I do take comfort in knowing that you are still with us, just in a different way now. Our last visit will be cherished FOREVER, my little guy is still trying to figure out your secret to the train whistle, your stories and jokes are going to be deeply missed but NEVER forgotten. There aren't enough words to adequately express how much the kids and I love you! Until we meet again, give everyone up there a HUGE hug and big ol' kiss for us -- RIP Grandpa you deserve it!
