I miss you with all my heart, I will never stop thinking of you and the memories we made. I want to thank you for everything you did for me and my boys, but most importantly for showing us true love from a grandfather. You were not only my tata you were my best friend. I will always remember playing dominos, gold fish and listening to oldies with you. I love you so much Tata, it will never be the same without you but I promise to stay strong. God sure blessed me with the best guardian angel forever.
