Daddy is down at the hospital right now, but he emailed me a picture of his Grandpa.

Wow.

I love that someone captured this image.  I love that back in the day, having a camera was a big deal, but someone took the time to make sure this moment was preserved.

I love that this man looks just. like. Daddy.  (well, Daddy might have more grey hair!)  Even the expression on his face is one I’ve seen before in my own house, even though I was never lucky enough to meet this man.

This photograph is priceless, and what I’m feeling right now is why I preserve memories of my own and for others.

Truly awesome.
