He tought me how to be kind loving and caring to anyone I talk to. I am going to miss the fun times that you and grandpa came to pick me up to take me to the movies. I had a great time. He encouraged me to build things out of my lego's that I never built before. He will be in our hearts forever and he will be looking over us to protect us. I love him and will miss him.
