    I love you grandpa you were the best grandpa I could have asked for even though I was able to see you a lot when I did I cherished every second with you I always thought you were invincible but you are in a better place and I know you are watching over all of us. You will always be in my heart always and forever

    My best friend, my number one Pops, most of all the most caring and giving person I have ever met. Laughs and awesome quality time with each other no one will ever know what we chatted about but us. I missed out on so much with you (Pops) from my childhood but we both conquered and made more memories to make up for the ones lost. My heart is full and happy your home with grandma and grandpa, and of course your honey. Heart was not ready what so ever but I know you were and it’s ok. Everything will be alright Pops. 💜

    My heart is so sad that I will not see you at the next POW-WOW, to spend family time together like we always did you, Faithy, Roy n Monica, me and D when she wasn’t gambling. But our memories are long and I have a great memory, So I will continue to miss you, but the memories will keep me smiling with tears in my eyes from laughing so much. Until I see you again my dear sweet cousin & brother Dance with the angels and enjoy your home coming with your parents, your wife Snooky, and all the family who has gone before you, give them hugs for us down here. Please, come see me in my dreams, once you are safely home. I’ll be waiting! Love you for simply being You.
