family, gpa allen, growing up, little reminders of life, love, memories

memories of the sea…

Last weekend I ate dinner with my grandpa allen & my dad. I listened to old stories about when my grandpa was in the navy & his escapades as a seashore patrolman & the time he spent at sea. It was so fascinating– I can only imagine how fun my grandparents would have been to have as friends.

I adore the pictures of him in his navy uniform… how sweet is the one of my grandma & him?! How beautiful & handsome! : )

I miss my grandma‘s stories about when she met my grandpa & how she knew he was ‘the one’. how romantically wonderful! But I love to hear my grandpa’s stories, too! I miss my grandma, but I must say I am so blessed to have my grandpa here to remind us of her love…not that we could ever forget.

I love my family.

  1. Oh, your grandparents were adorable!! It must be so wonderful to have the experience of listening to your grandpa's old stories. I never had that with any of my late grandparents, unfortunately.
