My sweet grandfather just turned 90. Today his 5 sons and a bunch of grandchildren and 4 great grand children gathered around to love him and celebrate his life and legacy. Amazing to think how the world has changed just since I was a kid, imagine looking back over 90 years. What a gift.
Speaking of gifts, I remember every Christmas Nana and Dee were the best gift givers. They always had something creative and wonderful and unexpected. One year we arrived to find home-made wooden stilts for each of the grand-children. We had never heard of anything so wonderful. We raced all over the yard. To this day I think of that as one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. I wish I still had mine.
Today, we were all given a gift – the story of Dee’s. For the past 4 or more years he has been carefully documenting the story of his life and my uncle Brad helped him compile it into a book. Today Dee gave it to everyone as a gift. I can’t wait to read it! What a treasure.
Happy Birthday Dee. You are loved.
