Happy Birthday Gramps 1918-2010

It’s so hard to believe you’ve been gone from this earth for almost 12 years. I love you with all my heart. You will never know how much your love shaped my life and the person I am today.

I think of you every year on your birthday even when you’re not here, it’s a celebration of the day you were born.

You brought sunshine to so many people’s lives and showed me what a decent person looked and acted like. Thank you for taking me in to live with you and granny as a troubled teen. You help change the trajectory of my life and I know I would not be where I am today without you to guide me.

One good looking soldier

Happy Birthday! I love you more than words can say.
