  4. Dear Dad;
    You are my best friend, my hero, my teacher, best dad ever and there will never ever be another person like you in this world. I will miss working side by side with you; who is gonna make me laugh with those silly joke puns. You have taught me so much about life and in the work place. You have a heart of gold, you are such a caring and forgiving man. You were admired and respected by so many people. You will never be forgotten; I love you so much dad (my hero).

    It brings a great sadness to hear of the passing of Grandpapa. He was the best grandfather anyone could have ever asked for. He was always compassionate and caring in everything he did. Grandpapa was always someone I could go to when I needed help, when I was feeling sad or even when I just needed a good laugh, he always told the best jokes. Grandpapa will be missed dearly.
