Kind of amazing

I was just looking a the pictures of Grandfather at Thanksgiving with Dawn's neices Kristen and Calen. Grandfather always enjoyed being around kids and kids always enjoyed grandfather. We would occasionally take Dawn's neices over to visit grandfather and a great time was had by both grandfather and the kids.

It made me think of the fact that during the course of grandfathers 99 year life he undoubtedly interacted with people who were born in the first half of the 1800's and he also touched the lives of two girls who will live well into the 21st century and possibly into the 22nd. It's kind of mind boggling when you think about it.

I remember Grandfather would take me fishing and before we would dig worms and kids would apear out of nowhere. He really did have a way with children.
