“Nothing gold can stay”. Throughout Ponyboy’s years, he has lost multiple people who took a piece of his heart to the grave with them.

Another person that I am thankful for is my grandpa. I never got to meet my grandfather unfortunately because he passed before I was born. Even though I never got to meet my grandfather, I am thankful for him because without him I would not be the person I am today.
