    Thank you for all you taught me in life, I was honored to be there for you all these years helping out in any way I could.

  3. Dear Grandpa/Dad/Male-Role-Model

    I’m glad you got to live long enough to see me make a man of myself and cut loose past deeds who just brought me down. You got to gee me rise from the hood life to getting hooded at my grad school graduation. You were extremely happy to know I got that side part time job with UPS being apart of the Union. My love for you is so unconditional because you have showed me that kind of love my life. I will forever miss you! Much love and respect, your grandson/son
