    Hard for me to even think you are gone I was just talking to you a few weeks ago. I have so many memories with you and grandma. But I will never forget the night at Sonny’s BBQ we all sat down for dinner grandma you me and dad and I kept touching my dad’s face and then yours and ever since then we have been touching each other’s faces. I will miss that so much. I know you and grandma are looking down at our family every day you and her are together again. I love you to the moon and back and even then some you are greatly missed
    I love you grandpa Goss.
