I miss you so much, you were the only one who loved me and believed in me even though I wasn’t what everyone else wanted. I’m not sweet, kind, gentle, and half as responsible as my other sisters like my parents want. I’m not the little boy my Dad’s side wishes I was. I also refuse to suck up to your wife when she’s mean to my little brother because he’s adopted, mentally retarded, and loud, (like he can help all that?).
You loved me even though I couldn’t sit still through our card games. You thought I was so smart, even when I refused to do my work in third grade because I was terrified of the teacher. You didn’t mind when I came into the house all covered in dirt and leaves in the fall. You believed in me, and every one of my dreams.
It’s been two years now Grandpa, why did you have to go? Why couldn’t you have stayed a little longer. I haven’t forgotten you, I still wear your ring every single day. I promise I won’t forget you. I will love you forever and always.
A very proud granddaughter
