I love you padrino, I know you’re resting now. You’re the reason why I found such a love for firearms and you were the one who taught me how to drive. I’ll forever miss you

I remember waking up after staying the night to him making us blueberry pancakes and over medium eggs. He showed me to eat them both together for a different taste of sweet and salty. My favorite breakfast to this day. I’ll never forget his smile of love and sincerity. ? Love you Grandpa RIP ???✝️
