Message to G-pa
Today the world lost a true American. A man who spat in the face of poverty and orphanage. A man who lied to serve his country while not of age. A man born with nothing, whose hard work gave him the wealth he deserved. A man who every year brought together the generations of his family for Thanksgiving. A man who taught my father to be a man, to be a business man. The man who gave everything for his family, allowing my father to give everything for mine. This man meant so much to so many, and I only hope I can become half the man he was and live half the life he lived. ~ Andy Buttner
