My hubands grandfather...

We visted with my husbands grandfather for Christmas and this 89 year old man is amazing! He has such stories to tell, he has a memory like none other. He is also a ww11 vet and told us so much about this countries history. He became really emotional when talking about the terror he went through when serving this country. To listen to him talk is so moving, I am so glad we still have him on this earth. He knows so much and has lived through things that none of us can imgaine. Thank you grandpa!

  • I always loved to listen to the stories my Grandfather used to tell. He was really an old timer born 1898. I well always miss him. I learned a lot from him and as I have gotten older I realize that how right he was on even more things then I ever realized when I was younger.
