    You will be missed granddaddy. I was really hoping you would make it to my graduation.

    I’ll never forget all the meaningful words of encouragement you gave me, our silly fights, and our long talks about religion. You were such a comical person.

    I’m sorry I did not get to see you during your last few days of life. I was really hoping you would pull through like you usually do.

    Until we meet again,

    I love you

      Your comments are absolutely beautiful. You will see him again. Keep praying to GOD the Father and all you ask for will be given to you. JESUS will always be with you. Read your Bible and you will know of ALL his promises to all Believers.

      Now Your Mom and Granddaddy are rejoicing.

      Love NANA
