This is a short story written by a grandson who had a very special
relationship with his Grandpa.

Many of us unfortunately were born after our own Grandpas had passed on and
never had the opportunity to enjoy moments like this.

The grandson writes... I hope this will again confirm that the most
important information in your life won't come from a teacher, the library or
the Internet. It comes from a mentor, and always on a very personal level.
My long-passed grandfather's birthday is coming up and, for me; it is a time
to reminisce.

We used to take long walks and drives together. He would make special trips
to pick me up so I could spend weekends with him. I was young when he died.
If he were living today and sharing his pearls of wisdom, I'd be a better

Those gems were all well and good, but the one I remember best came from him
when I was only 12. We were sitting in a park, watching children with their
mothers enjoying a beautiful spring day. He told me that one day, I'd find a
woman and start my own family.

Then, came the jewel in the crown of grandfatherly advice when he said, "And
be sure you marry a woman with small hands."

"Why should I do that, Grandpa?" I asked. And Grandpa said, "It makes your
pecker look bigger."

It kinda brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it?
