Dear Grandpa (or Bebo as I used to call you),
The world is so lucky to have had you for these past 80 years and I feel so blessed to have had you as my Grandpa! I really think you are the best grandpa that a girl could ask for and I have looked up to you for my whole life. I love how you can talk to absolutely anyone. I love that you are always there for your family. And, I love that you are always willing to share your opinions and share of yourself.
Grandpa, I really admire how you are willing to serve anyone and everyone. I myself have been blessed by bags of flour, pounds of hamburger, as well as sacks of potatoes, onions, and garden vegetables. Thank you.
Adam and I are also eternally grateful for the support you have given us throughout our adoption. We hope to someday be as good of parents as you are! You are such a great example in everything that you are.
I am so thankful for the 27 years of memories that I have been able to share with you. What other girl can saying that her grandpa hid things like tissues or golf balls in her shoes or stole Stove Top stuffing off of her plate at Thanksgiving? I’ve also learned so many things from you. I’ll never forget that soy sauce is made from grasshopper spit, raisins are dead flies without wings, and tapioca is actually frog eggs.
Your Grand Daughter Katie
P.S. Have fun on your upcoming cruise to Alaska. I would have loved to experience that with you, but I look forward to hearing all about it once you get home!
