Saints (& grandpa) be with you...



My grandpa had a beautiful Irish tenor voice. He often sang this to me when it was time for his my nap...

  3. Wonderful St. Patrick's Day post. Now I am realizing neither of my grandfather's ever sang to me. But I do remember my paternal grandfather singing in church and he had a wonderful bass that gave me chills when he sang The Old Rugged Cross.

  4. I never knew my grandfathers, one died in 1922 and the other twenty years later.

    The verse on the card is a new one to me. Hope your day went well.
