|Message:||Papa, There are not even words to describe how much I miss you. You are the greatest person I have ever met. I love you so much and you are the best grandfather any one could ever ask for. I was just looking through some old family albums and tears started pouring down my face because how much I miss being around you and how much I want to talk to you right now. I would do anything for you to be here, but I know your in a better place. Watch over Mom, Nana, Hayley, and me. I love you with all my heart.|
