Excuse my indulgence but I wanted to post the notes, from my children, to their grandfather, who died on February 23, 2011. This one is from Sophie Torrents:
I wish you were here so I could tell you how much I love you, but I think you already know that. To me you are the only grandfather I have known and I have some of the most loving memories with you. I will never forget when I danced in a pink dress on your feet all night and how you always believed in me and told me I could be anything I wanted to be in life because you made me feel special and this is because you are special, I look up to you in every way; for your generosity, kindness, knowledge, honesty and most of all love. I will miss you.
