Journal reads: I always thought my grandpa was an amazing man. Always had a big voice! Could never win an argument with him. Everyone who knew him admired him so much. Smart, hard worker, loving, but also stern and very opinionated. He had his 'moments' (like we all do) but, he was always there for his family and friends and received a lot of respect from many. Miss his antics - like pulling my toes when once asleep and chasing after me with a dead mouse (yes, he's done this many times) and pouring water out the window to the unsuspecting drunks that would linger at night below his bedroom window (bwah ha ha)! It's been years since he's passed on and I miss him so much. I always find myself sharing stories with my children about their great-grandfather - a beautiful way of keeping the memories alive. I miss you abuelo - I miss you grandpa.
