Thanksyou for raising me when my parents sent me away. You were like a father since mine I did not speak to dad. I can easily say that I would be in prison if it were not for you. Thanks for my first fishing trip, trip for my first football game, thanks for treating to the 89 superbowl. Thanks for making me the man I am today, and thank you for talking me out of retaliation against the guy the shot me. You were right, things happen and at least I survived the gunshot wound to the chest.
When Hurrican Katrina hit the Gulf Coast and you went missing from New Orleans, not knowing your whereabouts, my heart went heavy thinking you were dead. For two weeks, I volunteered at numerous evacuees shelters the flooding into Houston, Texas to try to locate you. I thought you were dead, and nothing I could do, because of the closing of New Orleans, Louisiana, I could not drive back and take action to try to search for you. When I did here from you, everything was better knowing my gramps was okay.
Then only a year later, I got more bad news of your health.
In November, when I got news that you were in ICU, I held my faith, thinking you would be okay, and that the simple surgery that was scheduled to be performed on was nothing of great concern. But within a day later, they canceled your surgery because of a discovery of the hole in your heart. Even down to the last day, you were full of life, and the nurse even had to tell you to keep it down because you were watching out Indianapolis Colts win. Then, in a matter of a day or so, the doctor told us that you were not going to make it and going into the hospice. I'm glad that you didn't stay there long, and you left us within a few hours after.
Grandpa, I love you old man and wish you were hear... you are still the only person that I could have depended om to listen to my goods and bads without judging me.
We finally made it to the SuperBowl grampa!
I'll see you when the time comes Gramps.
