Happy 94th!

This is a little late, but I figured I might as well post it anyway!
Last month on October 13th, my amazing grandfather turned 94 years old! It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating his 93rd.

We had a little bowling themed birthday party! He had a great day with a ton of phone calls from family and friends. I love that he has lived such a full life and has touched so many people. Unfortunately, his health is slowly declining and has had a recent diagnosis of a faulty heart valve - but his mind is still sharp as is his sense of humor! Out of the blue last night, he asked my mom and I "What's an illegal?" I think what? He knows what an illegal is (please, he lives in Maywood!) - it must be a joke.
"I think I have one in my backyard."
"You have an illegal in your backyard??"
"Yeah, it's a pretty sick bird."


  1. LOL--grandpapa...I love it!! It took me a little while but I got the joke. Smarty pants!

  2. Your blog! It lives! :) Also, I think your grandpa would be a hit at the Improv. :D

  3. God bless your grandpa. He is a living testimony.
    My grandma just turned 101 in july 2010, and she is still walking around. I just visited her in september and she told me she has only one thing to do:
    - To pray for everyone.
