A Legacy of Love
My greatest heroes have always been my grandparents. The lives they have lived are a shining testimony of hard work, love, dedication, dreams, and sacrifice. Two years ago today I flew home to surprise my Grandpa Sherd on his 80th birthday. He was so shocked...I will never forget the look on his face when I walked into his home. It was one of the best days of my life. We had a huge party to celebrate his life and the love and adoration we all have for him. Sadly, it was the last time I saw him alive...he died just 6 short months later. I am so grateful for all of the love and laughter that we shared during our 30 years together. I always felt like he was the one person in the world that 'got' me. I never felt like he judged me....he only loved me. And so today with a heart full of love & gratitude I want to say, "Happy Birthday, Pops! I sure do miss you. You mean the world to me. You always will."
Til we meet again...
