    I will forever miss you papa. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you. I miss the long talks and lectures. I miss the laughs and newspaper jokes. I miss the goji berry juice and the fish oil. I miss the love and the hugs. I hope you’re doing well.
    Love, one of your favorite fishing partners and favorite grandchild (:
