    Words can not express how sadden I am with the passing of Grandpa. The two of you were instrumental in making me the person I am today. The Love you had for each other for 59 years was truly inspirational. I miss him so much, that words can not even express it, however I know he is in a better place and is no longer suffering. He is looking down on us now and smiling!
    I love you!
