RIP GrandpaSubmitted by Unknownuser on Fri, 04/11/2014 - 12:10
I wish I would have known you. I have memories when I was a child, fishing off the pier with you and watching the the dolphins swim. That was many years ago and but a faint memory...or a dream. I wish I could go back to those days. I wish I could talk to you and learn more about who you were. I know you loved Frank Sinatra. I know you loved your Thunderbird with T tops. I know you loved your Seagrams. I know after Grandma died you were very lonely. I wish I would have been there for you. I feel I missed out on so many memories growing up without a relationship with my grandparents. I remember seeing all my friends with their grandparents and feeling an emptiness. I'll bet you would have been a wonderful grandpa though! Some day perhaps...I will meet you where the sun disappears into horizon. Someday we will meet again on that pier and fish, and laugh, and tell stories.
Rest in piece Grandpa for now you are truly free.
None of this really matters. Life is too short. A Christmas card once a year is not enough. Build relationships with your loved ones. Let them know you love them.
