    Father was the only man I’ve ever met who never said an unkindly word about anybody. He admired the success of others and was a living example of what it ment to be a good man. He taught me my work ethics, respect for others, and how to be tactful yet honest. He’ll always be lovingly remembererd and missed.

    This is your grandson you never cared about. Can’t say I miss you, you never took time to know me. I just wanted to say I forgive you. It took me this long to come terms with it, but I hope the best for you on the other side. Sorry if it offends anyone else, but I have made my peace and wish things would have been different.
