Sample sentence:

There's not a dad in the world who compares to you, and there's not a daughter in the universe who's more grateful than (me or I).

    Has nothing to do with being at the end of a sentence. – Hot Licks Nov 19 '15 at 3:16
  • @HotLicks You're correct. It doesn't have to do with the end. It has to do with the formality of the person. Using "I" is more grammatically correct and sounds professional. – anonymous Nov 19 '15 at 4:10

There's not a dad in the world who compares to you, and there's not a daughter in the universe who's more grateful than I am.

    This is best: Me is allowable but too informal, I is correct but stilted; adding the am means it's correct and sounds natural. – Daniel Stowers Nov 19 '15 at 4:17

    @DanielStowers I don't think using "I am" is the best as it might look "redundant". I think the link I posted in the comment shows a possible reason why. – user140086 Nov 19 '15 at 6:13

I is the correct answer. It is actually very easy. To decide, all you do is place, "am" at the end to know. AM is implied. You would not say, "me am", therefore I is correct. Similarly, if the sentence was, "She knows better than I (do)." Do is implied. Another example; "He has the same notebook as I (have)." Have is implied.
