    I miss you. The twins will always remember that grandpa who snuck them side smiles when they did goofy things. That grandpa that was always singing. They truly will always know what a great man you were.
    Who is going to praise my coleslaw now? Or how awesome my coffee was? Twinkling eyes that always greeted me or those love yous when I left.
    Until I see you in the Otherworld Dad ?
