To the History Monster, University Professor, Well Rounded Intellectual and Bike Ride Enthusiast Grandpa,

I will always smile when I think of our many bike rides, trips to Shakey's, discussions and time at Franklin Street. I am so grateful to have grown up in the same city as you so we could make wonderful memories together. I wish we could have made many more, but I need to remember that I have been blessed with so many. I will do everything in my power to spread your passions and develop my talents. One day, you will read my crappy book and laugh at my pizza eating skills. "Hoo-heh! Yahooo!" I hope that you are with Grandma now, reading as she paints in the park.
