Ten short years ago today I lost my first true love, my grandfather.
Just a sophomore in high school, I never realized then how sentimental I would become on the topic.
There is so much that can happen in a decade. Before you know it, the days are gone and all you have left are the memories. Since you left, I graduated high school and went to college, fell in love, and four short years later completed my Bachelor's degree. Then I moved to Charleston and completed my MBA, and before I knew it I was happily married. During these past ten years and through all the memories, there is one thing that has never changed. I strive to live my life as you did yours- honoring God, putting family first, and never losing hope of my dreams. You instilled in me so many values that I never truly understood until now, and I am thankful for all the hard lessons you taught me.
I hope that I have made you proud.
If tears could build a stairway,
And memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to Heaven
And bring you home again.
