It always seems that no matter how we try to plan things for the best, time slips away and the things we’re used to having in our lives move on without us and without any notice. It’s sad,but true and I wish I had more time to talk and reminisce about the good times and lessons you’ve taught and shown me growing up until now. You’re no longer in any struggle or pain but I can always remember that the simplest and memorable times I spent with you were ones that showed me how to be strong and happy in the things I chose to pursue whether it was school or sports, you always supported me through and always with a smile and a laugh. Lastly I believe that one thing I’ve learned from your life is to always live humbly and honorably no matter how hard things may seem and how others think about you. Thank you for being apart of my life grandpa and I’m so glad I got to be a small part of yours, I’ll miss you plenty and I promise you’ll never be forgotten.
