Our special daddy retired from Oscar Mayer in 2005. He was a devoted grandpa and would do anything for his grandchildren. He loved to fish and hunt in his younger years.

We keep this love in a photograph, we made these memories for ourselves, where our eyes are never closing, our hearts were never broken and times forever frozen. Still, so you can keep me inside the pocket of your ripped jeans, holding me close until our eyes meet, you won’t ever be alone. Wait for me to come home. There are no more tears in heaven daddy, God has you wrapped in his arms, you are our angel now. Until we meet again, see you later, love you always.
