A poem from a grandchild:
Thank you for being so helpful and kind
to make us feel better and fine
Thanks for being there to help out,
You know what caring is all about.
You have done so much when we were in need
You are a very great person indeed.
It means so much to have a grandpa like you,
Someone who will take care of us when we have the flu.
We just want you to know you will be in our hearts all days
You cared for us in so many ways.
