    Dear loving grandpa,
    I am so glad that I got to meet my grandpa he was so amazing and the best grandpa ever! It was an amazing experience to get to know you and hear your funny stories. I will always love you and you will always be in my heart. You woke up and told me you loved me only hours before you passed, it is going to break my heart that you aren't going to yell "there's my granddaughter" when I walk in your door. I will miss seeing your face every day and it was the best day of my life when I first met you in Fun Valley. I will always remember you in my heart and I am so thankful that I can tell my kids about my amazing, fun, and playful grandpa one day! I love you grandpa.

    From the time I was born
    I guess you would know
    Ten perfect fingers
    Ten little toes
    When you first put your finger in my tiny hand that’s when I first knew
    You were my Daddy no one else would do
    As I grow older
    and reach for the sky
    My Daddy is still there
    to keep that twinkle in my eye
    When I need someone to hold me
    you never say I’m too big
    You pick me up and squeeze me
    and whisper you’re my little girl
    Most other people don’t understand me
    or maybe just not as well
    That’s why you’re the one I run to
    when I have something to tell
    I love you Daddy
    as you can see
    I’m so glad
    that you’re a part of me.
