Here is the excerpt:
There are so many things we are going to miss about our Pappy. We will miss the way he rolled around on the floor with us, and played horsey. He always knew just how high to throw us, not too high, but high enough to have a great time. We loved it when he put his hat on crooked and scrunched up his face. We loved going grocery shopping with him; he always let us eat the blueberries before we paid for them. We loved walking to the park and taking a popcorn break at his house. We loved giving him hugs and kisses especially when he said he didn’t want them. “No kisses!!!” He would say. He made us laugh so hard we would go weak in the knees and fall over. We will miss snuggling with him on the couch watching an Elmo video. We learned so much from him in the short 2 and a half years he loved us. Pappy was the one who taught us how to shake hands with people when we met, “How do you do?” He would say. He taught us that a chocolate chip cookie can cure any sadness or ailment. He taught us to love our naps- “I wish I could take a nap” he would say. He taught us we don’t need a reason to stop by and visit the people we love. He taught us that anyone can be a grandpa, but not just anyone can be a Pappy. We love you Pappy and we are so proud to be your living legacy.
