their Grandfather

I know there is a lot wrong with this picture, but, it IS my favorite photo of the week.  This simple snap shot is a photo of great love and admiration for a man they call Grandpa.  It was taken right after a memorial Mass marking the third anniversary of their grandfather's death.

I think the greatest legacy their grandfather left behind is the time he gave to people. He would just sit and listen. Even though we often joke and say "he couldn't hear what you were saying"; he sat there and freely gave his time and love when he had so many other things to do.

So last Sunday - September 30 - three years to the day he died, the grandchildren show their love and admiration once again, by giving there time back to the man who knew time is only temporary but love lasts forever.



  1. That is spectacular. You really couldn't ask for anything more.

  2. I think it's so nice that you do a memorial mass. I grew up in the Catholic church but have never heard of this before- what a nice thing to do.

  3. This brought tears to my eyes. What a beautiful way to remember someone.

  4. NOTHING wrong with the photo! ♥ wonderful capture and a memory!

  5. Beautiful shot! What a nice shot and a great way to remember a loved one. :)

  6. What a lovely tribute in remembrance of someone who made a difference in his own way.
