Yesterday morning you left us. You moved on to a place where you'll no longer have to endure suffering or pain. People always manage to write these long beautiful messages when loved one’s pass, but I'm sitting here and I can't figure out a single thing to say because nothing is going to give me what I really want. I want you back here, just for a little while longer. I know it's selfish to want this because I know how much pain you were in but there are so many things I still need you here for. I need to here your funny wise cracks one more time. I need to see that goofy face you make every time you tell a joke. I need another one of your tight hugs. I just really need you back. You were so good to all of us grandkids. I remember all the sleepovers we used to have. I remember the delicious palatschinkes you always used to make us for breakfast because they were everyone's favourite. I remember you watching the river dance videos with my sister and I because you knew how much we loved dance. I remember all the tractor rides you'd take us on. I remember building forts under the pool table in your basement. I remember us picking pears from your tree out back. I would do anything to be able to turn back time and enjoy all those things with you just once more. Unfortunately, I know that can't happen. I'm left to cherish all of these amazing memories. I miss you so much already grandpa but you're finally resting peacefully beside nanny and I know that's where you truly want to be. I love you always.
