  1. Sorry Tim, its always hard to lose a parent. Hope everyone is doing ok.
    Love and Prayers, Betty

  2. I love you and I miss you so much, grandpa. I’m sorry I wasn’t there more and maybe it’s better I wasn’t. I don’t think I could have handled seeing you in so much pain. Thank you for always being there for me and making me feel important and loved. I never had my dad around but you were always right there. Thank you for being the dad I never had. I wish I could have given you and grandma the world. I hope I didn’t make life too hard for you. I refuse to say goodbye because I have to believe I will see you again or I can’t survive this. I wish I could hug you just one more time. It kills me that I didn’t get to say what I wanted before you left us. I feel so guilty for not doing more. You deserved so much more than this life gave you but I know God is taking good care of you now and I can at least rest knowing you’re safe in his arms. Until we meet again….I love you so much!
