It isn't goodbye, it is until we meet again in Heaven. I am so glad that I got to see you last year, even under the circumstances. You fought a good and honorable life, and we are all better for having known you. I will miss you, and I love you very much. Hug grandma and grandpa, my dad, uncles and other grandparents for me. I'm sorry I can't make it to your service, but I will be thinking of you. B
