Grandpa,Everyday of every year since the last time I saw you 6 years ago you have never been too far from my mind. You and Grandma and I were always really close and I will never get over the fact that I will never again be able to hug you, or laugh with you or tell you how much I love you. You have and always will mean the world to me. You were my hero as a child and will be until the day I join you and grandma in the mountains in the sky.I LOVE YOU AND WILL ALWAYS MISS YOU.Your loving granddaughter,Ashley

To me you're more than an Uncle, you're truly a great friend.Someone I could pour my thoughts out to knowing you'll cherish them to the end.You've made me laugh, when I wanted to cry.You've made me stronger; when I felt so weak I could die.Whenever I'm upset I know you're there with a shoulder to cry on.Whenever I face a problem and need some help I know you are one I can rely on.You've always made me happy, I hope you can truly see.You're more than just an Uncle, you're also a great friend to me.
