Overview

Those who are fortunate enough to know their grandfathers retain the memories of that special bond for a lifetime. In Why I Love Grandpa: 100 Reasons, Gregory E. Lang and his daughter, Meagan, celebrate the importance of a grandfather in his grandchildren�s lives, each reflecting on memories of their own grandfathers. "My grandfather, Obie Lee Brown, a self-taught maker of fine furniture, was a prominent figure in my early years," Greg writes. "He taught me to drink coffee when I was six years old, and soon after that to take a shot of whiskey with honey and lemon juice for a sore throat! My eyes still water when I think about him, especially on Sunday mornings as I drink coffee from what was his favorite mug."

What child wouldn�t love Grandpa? After all, he dotes on you. He takes you fishing. He gives you his spare change. He always has a peppermint in his pocket. And he doesn�t act his age. As we reach adulthood, we find ourselves reflecting back on the important lessons our grandfathers taught us as children through his example. He taught us to do the hard work first. He challenged us to be the best we can be. He taught us to keep our promises.

It seems that Grandfather knows more than anyone else. His position in the family is honored and almost sacred. With touching photographs of grandfathers and grandchildren of various ages and races, Why I Love Grandpa gives 100 reasons why grandfathers are truly special.
