Grandpa Wednesday on Monday

Today Grandpa would have been 99 years old.

He wanted to live to be 100.

He was a year older than Pres. Hinckley. (He would tell me that at least once a month.)

Every time Grandpa heard about a birthday celebration for Pres. Hinckley, Grandpa would say, "Why don't I get a birthday party like that?"

Grandpa's favorite dessert was strawberry shortcake.

In honor of him, that's what I made for dessert yesterday.

Happy Birthday Grandpa!

I would have liked your grandpa. We always have strawberry cake and homemade strawberry ice cream for my birthday. And we could have combined our birthdays- your grandpa and I. Mine is this week too.

99 cheers for Grandpa. For he's a jolly good fellow!
