Tonight we looked through all the old photo albums to find pictures of Gramps for his funeral next week. It was kinda hard, kinda sad and kinda fun but it certainly confirmed that nobody ever took a picture of Gramps when he wasn’t smiling.
Running across photos like this one left us smiling ourselves.
Then it was kinda hard, kinda sad and kinda fun and if my eyes occasionally “leaked” a little bit I was smiling when it happened. Just like Gramps.
I just think this is beautiful on a couple levels. I love this photo just as a photo. I think this post is a lovely tribute to your Grandfather as well.
A smile does so much. The person giving the smile is rewarded when the person receving it smiles back. They seem to be contagious!! I have always told my children to keep smiling, it is a wonderful way to greet someone.
I agree, he was always smiling! And that photo is priceless! OOXX
That’s a cheeky wee lad. 😀
That is a great photo. I don’t know if it’s his hands in his pockets or the hat but it is so charming.
I’m sorry for your loss.
