I will never forget our summer and chrsitmas vacations with Grandma and Grandpa Vanbibber! Grandpa and I would stay up late in the sun room. Might I remind you, that I thought Grandma and Grandpa were rich, because they had a hot tub!! We would sit in that room and Grandpa would record me in the upmost newest technogoly , yes, the voice recorder! Singing songs and recording my voice, with whatever I had to say. Because he always wanted to hear what I had to say. I didn't understand that, when I was younger, but do now that I am older, I figured out the power of voice! To hear your loved ones voice or to hear their voice at any moment when necessary needed. I learned that from him! We need to hear their voice and when we don't have a choice. May we have a recording of that voice or time, to never forget! I will miss you Grandpa and I will never forget our special times together!! Forever in my heart and never forgotten! Tell Grandma, I love her too!
