Remembering Grandpa Wayne

Today marks six years since you left this world. We are still trying to understand exactly where you are, but we are reminded that you are always with us even though we can't see you. Mommy tells us that you are up in the clouds so that if we want to talk to you we can just look up into the great big sky. We figured out today that you must have jumped on an airplane on your way up to heaven because how else would you get up there!?! We are getting bigger and bigger every day and our little minds are always working so this year has been one of lots of questions. We asked Mom if we could just text you since you can't talk, but she told us that unfortunately you wouldn't be able to text us back. We also wanted to know if you could stop the snow from falling since it comes from the clouds, but Mom informed us that you have no control over that. We love playing peek-a-boo with you behind the clouds. You always seem to win, but we have fun none-the-less. A few weeks ago we took interest in your Musky up at the cottage. Lily has decided that she wants to catch a Musky (or mosquito as she sometimes calls it) this year with Mom. We discovered this year too that Ranger and Thunder are up in heaven with you. Mom said you probably walk them every day. We asked if you could walk Wrigley, and Mom let us know that you gave Wrigley lots of walks every time you came to visit in Arizona. She said you'd walk him so far and for so long that he'd sleep the rest of the day because he was so pooped out. He could definitely use some of those walks right about now after the long winter we've had. We tried out lots of your toys this year up at the cottage...the four wheeler, the snowmobile, and your boat. We've heard lots of stories about you and your toys and hopefully we can enjoy them as much as you did. We aren't sure how to feel on a day like today. We know that everyone here misses you a lot. They still share tons of stories about you and we are learning more and more each day about what kind of man you were. We don't really understand the situation in its entirety yet, but one thing we did come to understand this year that we will never forget is that you are our GRANDPA. We love you!
