Happy Birthday, Dede!

Today this guy turns 77...going on 35.


Age doesn't slow down my grandparents, if anyone hasn't noticed!  On our cruise three weeks ago (which I still need to write about, I know), we had to keep up with my grandparents, not the other way around.  Dede was even my snorkeling buddy in Roatan.

Dede taught me to put Jesus first by serving on the Southern Baptist International Mission as a trustee for years.  I was able to see his heart for others in action many times at these meetings.  Dede taught me to shoot guns, and it's one sport at which I actually excel.  :)  I've learned to enjoy the great outdoors, work hard, save hard, and have fun from him.  There are few true gentlemen left, and Dede is one of them.  I can't think of him ever not putting our family first, and I'm grateful!

The four of us celebrated Dede's birthday early on the cruise, but the whole family is gathering tonight to eat and have fun.  It's a joy having everyone so close!
