|I'm going to miss you so much, Grandpa. To me, you represent all that is good in this world, and I hope that our family will continue to make you proud. You were such a proud father and grandfather, so proud of the people we've all become, yet never taking any credit for it. We are who we are because of you and the way you lived your life. I know that you're with Grandma now, who has been waiting for you, as well as Joe, Bruce, and all of your siblings, and your own parents and grandparents. Until we meet again. I love you so much and you are so very special to me.|

I want everyone to know what a great man you are and were. Never an un-kind word for anyone. A leader by example (but to humble to take credit for it). A man with the highest integrity like has never been seen before. A man that defined the word pride. But most of all, A MAN THAT I AM EXTREMELY PROUD TO TO SAY YOU ARE MY FATHER, MY FRIEND, AND ALWAY WILL BE MY DAD.
UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN!!!!
LOVE YOU ALWAYS AND FOREVER!! YOUR LOVING SON.
