The Final Thought

Grandfathers certainly have a huge impact on their grandchildren’s lives, I know mine did. Their love is unconditional and they inspire us to be more than we think we can be.

My own children have not had the pleasure of having such a man in their lives but I hope that their father will be a wonderful grandfather to their children.
