My Grandfather was the best man I have ever known. His actions were the same as his words. He set an example of how to live a good life both, as a Christian, and as a father,grandfather,husband,brother,and friend. As I watched him live his life, he continued to develop his spiritual maturity which showed in his love for God and his family. As he got older he became a giver of his time, his wisdom and to those in need or less fortunate. He showed love and grace for me and others in his life. He encouraged everyone he knew to be men and people of God. He started what he finished. He was a man you could count on. He was the patriarch of my family.
