My daughter Bethany has now met five great grandparents. I think that is amazing. To my knowledge I had two living great grandparents when I was born, and I was lucky enough that they both lived until I was a teenager. I was able to meet one of them once and get to know the other one very well. Of course, I have no idea what the future holds, but I feel blessed that people who were so important to me have been able to meet my first child.

Bethany met great grandparents four and five (my dad’s parents) this weekend when we went to visit them in Rochester, MN. We had a wonderful time. My life has been enriched by being the grandson of these wonderful people and they have both served as positive examples for me in many ways.
