  1. i started thinking about you today grandpa. i miss you so much. you’ve missed so much and i have so much i wish i shared with you. i wish i could have said a proper goodbye. i had no idea you were so sick. i feel bad that our last conversation was a stupid little argument about jfk jr. i love you so much grandpa. i will make sure no one dies of cancer ever again. even if it’s donating, i’ll help find a cure. i know i’ll see you again one day, but i just wish you were here now. you’d be so proud of me, i just know it. i love you grandpa and i know yu’re in a special place in Heaven with Great-Nana, waiting for us to be a family again.
