A Story about a Man
Let me tell you a story. I met a proud man. That had a heart of gold. But barley spoke the words I Love You. But that same man showed you what love was by his actions. This story is about a man that would curse you out but was always there when you needed him. This story about this man is that he loves to see people smile. The man in this story would give the shirt off his back to a stranger. Some thought he was mean but the man in this story was kind-hearted. The man in this story was my grandfather. We Love You granddaddy Bird. You were truly a blessing and amazing we appreciate you.
