    "My Grandfather was an amazing man. He will be missed beyond words! He was more like a father to me, he taught me to be rich in life with my morals and values. Having him as my Grandpa made me the person I am today. I will always have him with me. Grandpa... I will meet you down the "Bumpy Road"!"
