I was blessed to have 38 years with my grandpa and I know he was one of my biggest fans. He still walks with me each day and is still cheering me on. He welcomed my husband John as practically one of his own grandchildren when we began dating 23 years ago. I thank god my girls got to know him and vice-versa... 10 years and 7 years... not many great-grandchildren get that long. He showed love for them just as he always showed me. Thank you for the red rose petals Grandpa, and nudging John to notice them that cold breezy day. I know you were sending us a message that you were with us and it warmed my heart on that sad day. I love you.
