Abuelo

My abuelo (grandpa) passed away on Thursday. He was getting older, but I still was surprised to hear the news. He was always so kind to me.
When I was younger he would put me in his buick skylark and we would go to the mall of all places. But, he would drive 35 miles per hour in a 55 zone. I would always fall asleep. When we got there he would let me pick out whatever toy I wanted.
I could never decide- now I could (wink)- but it was so overwhelming as a kid. I picked astronaut barbie one time- she was pretty cool.
My abuelo wore those newsboy caps for as long as I have known him.
And he wore white tank tops all. the. time.
One time, my brother and I brought those zap-it guns to his house.
They shot ink that was a color at first and then disappeared.
We shot one of his tanks and he was all upset, not believing it would disappear.
He laughed when it did.
As I got older, he and my abuela moved to Florida. Can't say I blamed them, but I missed them alot.
I visited sometimes and sometimes they came here.
These pictures were taken a couple of years ago when we took the kids to Florida for the first time.
We were hoping to go again this year.
Now I will go for his funeral.
I'm so sad.
