  9. Grandpa,
    I will always miss you and keep you in my heart forever.
    You were one of the few significant men in my life. Thank you for all you have ever done for me and I promise to take you with me when I go to Rocky Point and save you a dinner seat at the White House.

    Love you Grandpa and I'll see you soon.

  10. Never got to spend much time with you Tio...but the times I did get to see you, you were Happy! Your smile could light up the darkest of rooms! I am grateful I got to see you for Grandma's funeral...you looked great...I have that to hold on to. Had a dream last night, that everyone was at Grandma's house, and she came there just to tell us how happy she was that you were with her and Grandpa now...so that gave me a little bit of peace...knowing you are with her and Grandpa. I will pray that the Lord helps us all thru our loss of you. Love you, and I will forever miss you. Love, your niece...Serena Schulte
