    Poppop & Grandma,

    Today, I have been thinking about you and grandma. Its hard sometimes for me to understand life and how it works, but there is one thing I can understand and that is that you all are missed very much by me! I think I miss you most because of your leading direction in paths in life I shall take, or your constant love and care you showed for me. I miss your touch, your smell, poppops hilarious laugh, the fun times and the bad times. Its just something that can never be replaced. I am not much on the religious thing about seeing you guys again, but I do hope its true and we again will reunite in the “Afterlife”. I love both of you greatly and just wish you could be here to see how big the kids are getting.

    With Love,
    Your Grandson
