Anyway, my Auntie Jeannie thought it would be the best gift to Grandfather to surprise him with some caroling on Christmas! Boy, was she right! We assembled in the lower lobby at Valley Medical and waited for him to arrive. We started singing as soon as he appeared.
He was beyond touched! Let's just say this is the first time I've ever seen my Grandfather cry! It was by far the best part of our Christmas. We are so joyfully blessed to have such a man in our lives as our GF! And to have such a family that will drop everything on Christmas day and drive to the hospital to sing for him...it warmed me to to my tippiest toes to think of it.
I must say (in the words of Xandra), "we sound goooood!" and we did! We even drew a crowd! It was such a blessing to me to bless him, and I know the rest of us were feeling the same.
He called each kid over and hugged and kissed them, and chatted a bit. I'm sure it was exhausting for him, but I'm equally sure it was worth every bit of strength it took!
The newlyweds even made a surprise visit!
The entire caroling chorus (minus me, of course!)
