To Grandpa, From Sabrina I love you more than you could ever know and you will be with me everyday, in my mind and in my heart. There's not a second that goes by that I don't think of you. Now you're my guardian angel, looking out for me and guiding me through this tough time. I will always remember each week that I would go to pick you up so you hang out at the house. I'd listen to so many stories you told that would make me laugh. I enjoyed the time you spent with us and looked forward to seeing you every week. Every time i dropped you off you would say "see you later shorty". You told me that you loved me the last time that I got to see you and I will hold those words close to my heart. I love you Grandpa. To Grandpa, From Amanda I will always remember my grandpa calling me shorty. I always thought it was funny how he would jump when you caught him off guard. He would say "dang it shorty, you scared me". He was so good with my girls (Star & Miley), always teasing them and stealing hugs. He would always tease and pester my son Kayden and they would always fight over his drinks that he had in his hand. Grandpa would just laugh and Kayden would get so mad at him. You told me you loved me the last time I saw you and it meant the world to me. I will miss seeing you at Uncle Alan's and want you to know that I love you and I will see you again someday.
