My Loveable Grandpa When I think of him, I think of special hugs he would give me whenever I needed one. I think of the little kisses I would give him when I saw him. When I think of him, I think of laughter we would have while remembering memories. I think of his love of football whenever his favorite team was on. When I think of him, I think of the stories he would always tell me when he was my age. I think of thoughtful gifts he would give me that would put a smile on my face for years. I think of the memories of us riding in his lawnmower around his big backyard. When I think of him, I think of the times that he was always there for me. I think of the food we would make when our family had a special occasion. I think of his caring heart, and how he could brighten someone’s day. When I think of him, I think of a grandpa who is too wonderful for words. I Love You Grandpa
