Grandpa was my favorite person. He was my rock. He was always proud of me. His unconditional love for me knew no bounds. I last seen him in October 2020. I spent 10 days doting on him. We made memories talking about family and pouring over pictures. He told me of family long passed that shaped him into the man he was. He spoke of his military career. I shaved his beard so he would let me get a recent picture of him. I mostly just sat next to him on the couch and watched his shows with him. I cherished that time with him. It was long overdue. I know he was so happy I was there. I love you, Grandpa. Wait for me. I'll be there someday. Until then, watch over me. Keep me safe. Love me from your place in heaven. I will continue to make you proud.
