My granddad is most probably one of my favorite people in the universe. Scratch that. He is one of my most favorite people in the universe. And today he turns 87! I hope I'm as sharp, witty and caring as he is when I'm 87. (Who am I kidding? I'm 27 and I don't have the witty part down. And some days, I'm not too sharp!)
He is a man who has made a huge impact on my life and has been one of the greatest influences in my life. I'm thankful that I've had the last 27 years to know him, learn from him and most importantly, love him.
He is everything a man should be. His faith is his life. His kindness and gentleness is recognized by all he comes in contact with and he doesn't ever meet a stranger.
So Bruce, Happy 87 to you! We can't wait to celebrate!
