    Heaven gained the perfect angel yesterday💙Grandpa you will forever be in my heart and so will the memories I have with you.. Late night card games with you will forever be cherished (while grandma is yelling at us because it’s 3 a.m. and we are too loud and grandpa just laughs at her).. Or how about those Sundays where we would watch baseball all day and than have Runza for supper!! Or all those times I would sneak you an extra beer or ice cream and grandma would yell at me saying “Julie you spoil him”… ABSOUTLEY!!! Or all those times you made me comb your hair for you.. I could go on and on… Gramps I miss you so much already but I know you are in a better place.. Love your favorite grandchild😉
