    It does not seem like a month has gone by it seems like forever. Every day gets a little bit easier not having you around but it will never be the same. Your chair still smells like you and i see your face every time i put your jacket on as if i just walked in. See your smile and having your hugs are what i miss the most and i hope to keep on making you proud. I love you Grandaddy Hoo-Hoo!
