Missing you, Grandpa

I actually made this card a couple of years ago for my DH when he was out of town for business. He said he would be honored to "present" it to Grandpa.

It's been 9 months and 5 days since Grandpa passed away. Today would have been Grandpa's 89th birthday.

I loved Grandpa and all the unique characteristics and habits that made him special. His favorite saying was, "The first hundred years are the toughest." Grandpa loved to whistle, watch baseball on TV and chant tongue twisters. He gave hugs that were a little strong. LOL! He LOVED the Muppet Show and Kermit the Frog. I'm regretful that I didn't speak at his memorial service the day before he was buried. My mind was blank when I had so much to say. I called Grandma today. She has been so very strong and she was more worried about me than herself.
