Dear Carter,
We were so very sad to learn that your Great Grandpa went to be with you this morning. I can't even imagine what the reunion between him and your Grandpa Mike must have been like. I'm sure that they had missed each other very much. Did you know that you got your middle name, Jay, from him? You never got to meet him here, but I have no doubts that you've gotten to know him by now, and I'm sure he's teaching all kinds of neat things.

We are really going to miss you Grandpa. We will miss the way you could take a piece of normal wood and turn it into something incredibly special. We will miss the way that you could ALWAYS find room for dessert after a huge meal. We will miss all of your stories....you had so many life experiences and it was amazing to hear about them. We will miss just being with you since you had such a positive look on life. We will simply miss you. Have fun with our other boys up there, and be sure to look out for Carter. We love you all.

I came across your blog randomly and just want to say I respect you so, so much.

My best friend of 15 years died at the age of 19 2 months ago and I'm still heartbroken, I have no idea how you must be feeling.

Stay as strong!
