''The world lost a great man on Dec. 23, 2019. My grandpapa a man that worked tirelessly to support his family. A true religious man that never stopped loving me even when he found out I liked girls. We always had a special connection he was not only my grandpapa but also my godfather. We shared many things together our love of poetry, our blue eyes and even our birthdays. He was so excited I was born on his birthday, he asked my Mom if he could have that present every year. I’m so lucky I got to have a final visit with him when I was in Ottawa last month. He was having a good day and we got to talk and joke one last time. I will miss my grandpapa but I’m truly glad his suffering is over, he is no longer trapped in a failing body and is free. I love you grandpapa. Thank you for giving me the perfect way to remember you.''
