To the Grandpa I Never Knew...I Love You
Thank you for your bravery and for sacrificing your life for the lives of everyone in this country. I never had the privilege to meet you, for you died when my father was only 15. Photos, stories, and fond memories keep me close to a grandfather I never knew. I love you grandpa Vickers and I know you are now fully at peace with grandma in heaven now by your side. xoxo
