Grandpa, you were such an incredible role model for your children and grandchildren. I cherished every moment we could spend together. You always did so much for us and genuinely loved being with your family. I miss you and always will, but I am so happy that you are at peace again! Your peaceful, happy nature will forever be a cherished memory of you. I just know you are looking down on us enjoying the family time we are having right now, and I hope you are surrounded by beautiful roses and animals reading in God’s wondrous garden. Thank you grandpa for all you have always done. You are an incredible man in all aspects of life, and I am more than blessed to say that you are my grandfather. I love you so much grandpa, forever and always. I won’t say goodbye, though, because I know I will see you again. Grandpa, watch over me. I know you’ll always be my guardian angel. I love you so much, grandpa. As I ended many cards, I cannot wait to see you again! Thanks for all the amazing memories growing up, I love you!
