A grandfather gives something to a young girl that not mother, nor father, or friend can give. A grandfather gives a child hope.
Hope for a future and happier days. Their light eyes full of memories and lips full of wisdom create a comfort that is hard to understand, but so easy to trust.
A grandfather is the reason as to why there is a tomorrow as well as why there was a yesterday.
They say that a father should be a young girls first love and even though my father is, my grandfathers were as well.
They impacted my life in a way that I will never forget.... they were my first loves and my first loves lost.
And even though they don’t stand next to me this day, I know that they always will forever walk beside me and be in the audience watching as I make them proud.
