HAPPY 92ND BIRTHDAY, GRANDPA!


(photo by Bilde)
I just wanted to send out my very heartiest and most sincere "Happy Birthday" to my beloved Grandfather on his 92nd birthday!! As some of you know from this post, it's an extra special blessing that he is still with us and I want him to know just how much I love, appreciate and admire him for the exceptional human being that he is, both in public and private. I am so proud of you, Grandpa, and sending you all my love on your special day!

My dad loves to laugh at me and all my blog reading but when I told him it was Ernie's birthday boy did he finally pay attention. We both wish him the happiest of birthdays. We hope he has as many full and happy days with you as possible.

this is to the "grandpa's of the world, all of our love, always! My grandpa was one of the sweetest, and kindest men I ever have known. He was an Italian gentleman, and I mean gentle. So happy Birthday to your grandpa from me! If only we had the knowledge and wisdom that they do. God bless grandpa.
