When I lost my grandfather in 2017, I had no grandparents left. I was distraught the whole hour and a half drive home. I cried to Josh that I had no grandparent left. Navigating threw adulthood without them is an unsettling feeling. Josh took my hand and said We can share mine. From the moment I met you, you treated me as your granddaughter. I am eternally grateful for all you and Grandma have done. You are one of the greatest influences in our lives. Thank you and Love you Grandpa :)
