I can no longer ride up the road to your house to just have a talk. My kids loved you dearly as well as myself. I keep telling myself \"I\'m bored, I\'ll just ride to grandpas.\"…. then I realize you\'re not there anymore. Losing grandma and now you too, has become the end of our family. You both were the glue that held what little we did have, together. In this sadness I find happiness knowing you two are back together, finally. I love you ❤️
