Makes My Monday: The Age of Our Ancestor

In his own words, "They're just two numbers; I'm going with 49."

Such is the youthful spirit of our twice-a-week-hospital-volunteering, weekly church ushering, clothes closet assisting, swimming pool sharing, independent living, incredibly inspiring and 94-years-old today, beloved Papa---my---and in spirit, Scott's---grandfather, Sarah and Darren's great-grandfather.

A quick pop-over visit to his apartment Sunday to wish him a wondrous birthday resulted in this Monday Making image...

Happy, Happy Birthday, Papa. We love you very, very much!

That is fabulous! What a huge milestone! My grandfather was 91 when he passed away. (Sadly it was before I had children of my own to meet him.)
