    Thanks Gramps. You're the toughest

    yet gentlest guy I know. Prideful, yet hilarious. The only reason we call you veteran is because Nice Badass M-F'er isn't an official title.

    Thankyou for all of your sacrifices.

    It's probably not very easy to do what you do and cope with all of the things you cope with. I really would like to take the time to thank each and EVERY one of you. For making my life, and every one else's a better one. A free one.
