Hey Grandpa, I wasn’t am sure what I’d want to write here, there’s so much I’m going to remember and miss about Grandma I could never Fit it all here. I think my favourite memory is going to get ice cream at the local convenience store after running around at the park in St George. I hope you’re doing okay and that you know how much we all love you and Grandma.

Hi grandpa. I am so sorry and am so sorry I can not be there right now. Just know that I am thinking of you. My best memories are of those times at yours and grandmas place for dinners with the whole family. I'm here in the Maritimes now, but when ever I think of "home" I always think of those times. Sending all my love from the east.
