Today is his birthday.
January 19, 1918
He's lived life for 92 years!

The above photo was taken about a year before he moved from Florida to live with us in Maryland - he was only 88 1/2 years young in it!
The next two are from this past Christmas....opening his present from Charlotte ~ a Super Grandpa sweatshirt made for him by Katie.

Happy Birthday to You!!

Happy Birthday to him! My Grandpa was also born in 1918, and his birthday is coming up on Feb. 6. He's here in MD w/ Gram while she's going through chemo ... I wonder, do you think they'd enjoy visiting each other?

When my twins were little we were driving and someone accidentally cut me off. They called from the back seat, "Don't be mad... he has a Pop-Pop face! Meaning he looked sweet, kind and loving.

Your dear FIL has a perfect Pop-Pop face! Please tell him Happy Birthday!

Kindly, ldh

It's such a blessing to have so many generations together. My brother's father-in-law (who is very close to us as well) was also born in 1918. Must have been a good year! ::Jill
