Sassy, grandparents are so special to us, aren't they! I loved mine a lot, too. I, actually, am celebrating the birth of my great grandmother. She was born 132 years ago today. She lived to be 104 and was so special and such a lady. So, I'm having lots of memories today, too.
It's nice what your family does in your grandfather's honor. At least you know he is happy and waiting for a reunion! Hey, maybe he's met my great grandmother!
