Happiness Is... 

RYAN             H is for hero. A war hero. My mom’s hero. Our hero.

BLAKE           A is for awesome!

BLAKE           P is for passionately patriotic. I don’t know anybody that loved Canada as much as my Grampy.

RYAN             P is for Progressive Conservative politician. Apparently we had a lot of P’s

BLAKE           Iis for intelligent. Did you know that Grampy skipped three grades?

RYAN             N is for newspaper clippings. He would send me newspaper clippings to help me on various things, including my project on the environment. I was told he would help and send clippings to many of you too. 

BLAKE           E is for energetic. Grampy was 95 starting a business.  

RYAN             S is for supportive. Even at 95 he came to my graduation and my football game when he knew I wasn’t going to play very much.

BLAKE           S is for Swiss chalet. Anyone not eat there with him?

RYAN             Iis for being inclusive and always interested.  No matter who you were, you felt important to him.

BLAKE           S is for his smile.  We will always miss it.
