Gals love that "father-figure" (Father, granpa, whoever) for a reason as the unadulterated love, protection and support they get from him through life, cannot from elsewhere! They know in bad times where to look. The person may not be there for you throughout life, but still "that presence" somewhere gives you throughout life, a direction and moral support! Miss you granpa! On times, i really miss you like hell!! I know, your blessings and you are always there nearby me but on times, do not know why still i miss you like hell!!
