Grandpa's 80th Birthday Memory Book

For Grandpa's 80th birthday, Aunt Terry took the lead in making a Memory Book for him. She had all the kids and grandkids write their fondest memories for him, and she beautifully put this book together for him. Even some of the great-grandkids contributed their art.

He loved this book. On the day he got it, after the hub-bub of the birthday party quietted down, he sat in his recliner quietly reading each page. It was pretty special.

Reading through it again several years later, I am struck by how much of our family history is captured in this book. It's an interesting story of a family (first small, then extended) through the fifties and up to present time.

The file is large, over 34 megabytes, but worth the download and read. I saved it in high resolution, so all the great artwork, handwriting, and photographs would come through crystal clear.

Just click on the photo above for the book to download. If you read it, and you like it, please leave a comment! I'd love to hear from you.
