  1. Pop,
    You are the best dad ever. I can’t believe how lucky I am to be raised by you. I miss you everyday because I can’t talk to my best friend and get the scoop on the latest sports or get some advice on life. I will miss you everyday and I am going to carry on the tradition that you passed on to me. I love you much pop and my heart is going have a hole without you in it. Rest in peace.

  2. dear grandpa,
    I love you so much and growing up knowing you had supported me and would jump to hear your voice on the phone or get excited to hear that we were going to see you again, we unfortunately didn’t get to have as much time together as i wanted but i love the time we did spend some outrageous moments together, don’t worry ill never forget and always remember your smile and that you are here with me ❤️.
