ninety nine

Brad’s grandfather is 99 today being born on the 11/11/11 which means he will be 100 next year.  He’s outlived 2 wives, one son and one daughter and only this year has he moved into assisted living and given up his license.  He has been emailing and using the internet up until this last year too!   He says he doesn’t like growing old and some days he says he doesn’t mind if he doesn’t wake up in the morning… he’s lived a great life!

Well grandpa, we think you’re amazing!  I will never forget the warmth you have welcomed me into the family with.  On our wedding day i remember you giving me the loveliest embrace and whispering ‘Welcome to the family.’  So happy birthday, you are loved!
