There are no words to explain the feelings that I am going through right now…  especially when I don’t even know exactly what I’m feeling. I am happy that you are no longer in any type of pain and are able to be with your family now, but I am going to miss you terribly as well your great-grandchildren and everybody else that knew and loved you. You were an extraordinary man, honorable husband, amazing father, loving Papa/Vavô and the most wonderful caring Papa/great grandfather in the whole world and I am proud to have called you my Vavô.  I am so thankful to have been able to spend the time with you that I did recently and I know that you are up there with my dad looking down on us. I love you and I will miss you more than i can ever express…
