Being the favorite of my grandpa I have gotten to spend a lot of quality time with him and have learned many valuable lessons from him as well. About a year ago my grandpa suffered from a major stroke. I will never forget when we got a phone call from my mom telling my dad that he needed to get us to the hospital as quick as he could so that we could say our last goodbye's. As I walked into the waiting room I remember looking and seeing the whole waiting room filled with extended family members and numerous friends of his, most of whom I had never even seen before in my life. It was at that moment that I realized how many people that my grandpa has helped and touched in his life.
He made it through his stroke and we are very lucky to have him still here on this earth today. My Grandpa is and will always be my Hero. He has a love for life that is so amazing. He is constantly serving other people and he has taught me everything I know about hard work, dedication, and how to farm and herd cows. Thanks for always being there and teaching me all the valuable lesson Grandpa. I Love You.
