Today is my grandfather on my mother's side, birthday and he would have been 91 today if he was still alive. He was an amazing man who really inspired all those around him. He was a fighter thorought all of his life. He fought in WWII, he fought many different types of cancers, had 4-5 heart attacks and a stroke. He passed away five years ago in April, a few days before I graduated High School. He was a strong believer in getting a education and learning as much as you can. He also loved to read, although I don't know if he did as much as I did of course. He was one of my greatest heroes, I always have looked up to him. I always felt really close to him, despite the age difference, I felt like I could confide in him no matter what. I will always remember him!!!
