My Grandpa passed away this year. 2/1/07 and I wrote this for him and read it at his memorial.

My grandpa is a strong foundation in my life, even when I am causing him a lot of grief and strife.
He loves unconditionally, whole heartedly, and true .
He would always say “I’m pretty and you’re ugly” the game that was always new.
He was strong, confident, and active, one of seven children he fought his way through.
A closer family you’ve never seen, but looking from the outside the joking might seem mean.
The man I look at today is not my grandpa I knew, I don’t know whose eyes I’m looking into.
My heart breaks to think that he will be gone soon, but I know that I will see him again when I get to heaven too.
We’ll be reunited for eternity, and he will be able to walk and run once again with me.
You’ve lived a great life you should be so proud, and when the time comes let go, walk to the other side where Jesus will be found.
You won’t be alone, Uncle Jay, Aunt Kay and Debbie are waiting, and your reunion they are anticipating.
Don’t worry about grandma she’ll be in good hands, she’ll never be lonely; we’ll make sure she won’t forget her man.
Don’t think of it as good-bye, but as see you later. We’ll be together again someday sitting in front of Jesus and singing His praise.
I won’t forget you until the day I die, and I will always remember that gleam in your eye.
When I reach the other side the first thing I’ll say is “I’m pretty and you’re ugly.” And we’ll laugh until we cry.
I love you Grandpa
