  1. Gramps,

    As we prepare to pay tribute and celebrate your life I reflect back on our relationship and what you mean to me. What an honor it is to be your oldest granddaughter. You are the world€™s greatest Gramps!

    I am sad because I miss you with my whole heart, but I am happy and very thankful that you were my Gramps. I am fortunate to have countless memories that I will cherish forever. From the Atlantic coast to the Pacific coast and many places in between, I loved every visit with you. Whenever I see a ladybug I think of the fun we had releasing them into your garden when we would visit you in New York. I will always remember driving through Manhattan with you and counting all of the honks you would get. I also remember your collections of polished rocks. I thought it was so amazing that you could take a plain old ugly rock and turn it into something so shiny and beautiful. We had a lot of fun together. It was always a blast to play Ping-Pong with you. I had to watch out for your sneaky left hand serve. You would also spend hours playing River Raid with me because it was my favorite Atari game. To make me laugh, you would purr like a kitten any time I asked.

    As we both grew older, I really enjoyed our walks on the beach together. Often when I would visit we would share meals together at Scotty€™s and admire the beautiful Pacific ocean scenery. As you became more interested in genealogy and began to document our family history, I looked forward to hearing about the new family connections you had uncovered each time I would visit. I will miss your stories about our ancestors. You would always tell me how we are related to President Fillmore and share the stories of various relatives that were significant in some way. I liked how fascinated you were with Deliverance Parmenter and how you always liked that name.

    One of the things I admired the most about you was the
    enthusiasm you had for your career. I was impressed that you worked for Presidents Nixon and Ford. I was always so proud of you.

    Each time we would talk on the phone, you made me feel like I was important to you. At the end of every conversation you would ask when I was going to come see you and would be excited with the answer. I will miss those conversations with you. I will always remember our last conversation. Before we hung up you told me €œI love you sweet one€. Now I send those words back to you. I love you too Gramps and I always will. You will always be a part of me. Thank you.
