My Paternal Grandpa

My paternal grandfather, Martin Cyril Thomas Huysman II, would be 90 today but for the leukemia to which he succumbed at age 84 in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C.

I regard my grandpa as a saint.

When I went to visit him in the hospice care center of the hospital, I took an plastic orange gem-like item from the wishing well and brought it home. It then went missing for many years. But today, on my grandpa's birthday, my mom found it and I know it is no mere coincidence. :-)
