  2. Grandpa I will forever miss you.
    You were the best friend of my life growing up, I loved going with you and grandma to so many places , camping in the trailer with the dogs to our favorite family spot in Divide, to you both coming out to watch me in my 4-H shows, giving me encouragement on all that I did.
    To making sure I grew up with respect of others and to always love with my heart. Teaching me about God as a child and many other things.

    To family board game nights, family gatherings around the holiday season, to feeding the deer in the canyon.

    Painting ceramics and watching you carve awesome things out of wood.
    So many memories that I will cherish for life.
    Meeting your great grandchild Omar , who loved you so much and enjoyed visiting you.
