  1. Papa,
    It hurts that you are gone, although I know you are in a better place, and out of pain. I cannot explain how much I miss you or even start to explain how very much I love you. I know you are up in Heaven looking after us, and keeping your eye on all of us. I thank you for that. You were such an amazing man, and grandfather. I am blessed to have been able to call you mine. Thank you for always being here for me. Blayden will forever be blessed for the short time he was able to meet you. I will always remind him how much you loved him and always show him yours and his pictures. I promise to watch over David and be here for him anytime he needs someone. You will be greatly missed by many. I love you so much Papa. I will see you again someday, so wait on me up there. Have fun with your daddy and sons up there. You deserve all the peace and rest up there. I will always and forever love you. Love Your Tori Louise.
