THIS IS A ‘TRUE TALES TUESDAYS’ POST
My late Grandpa, Samuel Lawrence Stewart, wanted to live to be 100 but fell short by a mere two years, eighteen days. Yesterday would have been his 100th birthday. You can see a better picture of him via his obituary, which also reveals a bit more of his life.
My grandpa was a twin. On the night that my grandpa was born, his mom, my great-grandma, gave birth to two babies, a girl and a boy. Laura, his twin, was born healthy. The doctor told my great-grandma that my grandpa wouldn’t live through the night because he was sick. Ha. He sure proved that doctor wrong! He outlived everyone in his family!
To accommodate everyone and their Christmas schedules, my family decided to celebrate Christmas by having on my Grandpa’s 100th birthday this year.
Let me tell you, we had a blast! We ate, drank, laughed, played, reminisced, and were just plain merry!
It was especially great for me this year because my son and I were re-united. 😉 I have never been happier!
I took tons of photos, too, and want to share my special day with all of you. 🙂 Enjoy!
It was wonderful that the whole family (our immediate family) was able to get together to celebrate Christmas this year on what would have been my grandfather’s 100th birthday. We certainly had a lot of fun!
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Season’s Greetings to all of you! May you all be as blessed as I am this year! 😀
