A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others. May the love of those around you help you through the days ahead.

May the many fond memories of your loved one provide you with peace and serenity at this time of loss.

He was a good man. And I wish he could be here so I could tell him how much I have missed him and how much I wish I could talk to him. He was to sweet. As his granddaughter I hope he is un a better place now.
