For my grandpa

My grandpa passed away Friday morning. Wednesday, he was sedated to manage his pain. Friday morning, my mom and dad were going to my grandparent’s house to say goodbye, but he died before they arrived. I had sent a note for mom to read to him, a note he never heard, but I know that he now understands perfectly my love for him. This is what I wrote.

My childhood memories are filled with your presence. All the best stories have you in them. Do you remember when you said, “April’s full of baloney!” And I said, “Grandpa’s full of baloney!” And you said, “April’s full of sugar!” And I said, “Grandpa’s full of baloney!” Do you remember when we’d hold hands and race? Or when we’d sit on the dock at sunset and fish?

Mom likes to tell me the story of when she was telling me about Jesus. She said, “April, Jesus is your best friend.” I asked, “Is Grandpa Jesus?” While that ‘s funny and sweet, it also has always rang true. Because you are the most Christlike man I know.
