A great man was born this day…
April 13, 1922, the day the world was first introduced to John Stanley Green.
A wonderful, thoughtful, loving man – who cherished his family and was a true friend to all who met him.
He was a son, brother, friend, husband, father and grandfather.
He was gentle and kind. He was determined and stubborn.
He was a veteran. He was an employee and boss.
He was an artist, carver and photographer.
He loved life and all that it brought to him.
He was a dreamer. He was a believer.
He was my rock. My favourite. My biggest supporter. He was my role model.
He was my grandfather but really, in my heart, he was my father.
On this day I celebrate the gift that was given to the world and all who knew him. I celebrate the fact that he was a part of my life.
On this day, I miss him with every ounce of my soul and am grateful that I can see him everyday in the eyes of my children.
Love you Popa, Happy Birthday.
