  1. You will be sadly missed Grandpa. Every morning, I’d go to my grandpa’s place, whip up breakfast, and we’d sit together, eating and talking about stocks. Our breakfast chats became a tradition, creating a strong bond between us. May the legacy of our grandfathers inspire us to cherish our loved ones, embrace shared moments, and find beauty in the simplest of joys. And may his gentle presence guide us through the twists and turns of life, reminding us to hold steadfastly to the bonds we form, and to always nourish the seeds of love and knowledge sown around our breakfast tables. Rest in eternal peace Grandpa.
