#12 My Crazy Grandfather

SunsetMerlot


This is my crazy grandfather. Hands down, the funniest old coot that's ever existed. On his deathbed, he told us (his grandkids) "Don't be cheap. Spend 25 cents and buy the paper. The Times promised me a big spread." He worked as a photographer for the LA Times for 50+ years and had many famous photos, including the first published photo of an atomic bomb explosion. He was a man of many stories and an unforgettable sense of humor. After laying his wife and two sons to rest, he stayed strong and kept his spirit high. He battled prostate cancer for 20+ years and lived to see his 92nd birthday and his great-grandchildren. RIP Grandpa

  1. *I knew I was a bad wife and mother for invariably pushing my husband to the point of hating me or seeing me with the kids. But I never let my bad attitude towards him let me feel like I am the worst woman out there. So, I fought inside of me to change the bad attitude and win back my husband’s heart for over six years but could not until he threatened me with a divorce and a restraining order, not only to keep me away from him, but away from our kids.
    *Because I can’t stand losing them, I threw away my pride and went spiritual on myself with the aid of doctor wakina ([email protected]), I was brought to light and made to understand that “it is of a great significant to make my husband happy and I must start by making myself happy”.
    *I boldly acknowledge the spiritual power doctor wakina carries that cured me from myself for four days and overturned my husband’s decisions. For over four months I have been having an entertaining moment with myself and family, a lot of things has changed both physical and spiritual. I say thank you Dr. Wakina for saving me from myself and restoring my marriage.
    *Love… Paris Tyne
