My Best Friend

My third granddaughter and best friend 

has published her first book and it came in at 71 in the US Best Sellers List

Proud grandfather or what? 

What I found really touching was the dedication I had no idea existed until I opened the page. Kind of makes life worthwhile.


  1. Congrats to your granddaughter, and wonderful to see how much love there is between you. Valerie

  2. Divine, John, Divine.

    Well done, Giselle.

    An extraordinary young lady, who loves her Granddad and Nan very much.

    What a Blessing she is, John.

  3. Sniff...blow...sniff. That's a tearjerker for sure. It gives us all confirmation of what we have know all along. You are extraordinary and obviously Patricia is too.
    Congratulations to Giselle...and to you all.

  4. John that's fantastic news, congratulations to your granddaughter and what a beautiful dedication to you for nurturing her talent. I'll have to add it to my kindle wish list!

  5. A dedication that moves me very deeply. A great affection binds grandparents and grandchildren, sometimes in an extraordinary way as evidenced by lovely words of your granddaughter.
    I'm so happy for all of you.Congratulations!!!

  6. John, you have every reason to feel the proud grandfather!! Congradulations to your best friend. I wish her many more successes.

  7. Her love for you both is so touching to read - congratulations to Giselle on the success of her book and congratulations to you and your wife for being such extraordinary grandparents.

  8. What a truly wonderful dedication John ... and what better reward for parenthood than to be best friends with our offspring. ;-)

  9. Well, that is just icing on the cake! Congratulations to your wonderful Granddaughter and to you and your Mrs. You must be so proud!

  10. Wow! Spectacular John. Lovely girl and most lovely dedication to you and Pat. One question? Are there any of these books left on the shelf of you local bookstore? I would have bought the lot to encourage restocking. Makes lovely gifts for all friends.

    1. Thanks very much. It's a bit bigger than that, Linda, she's been approached for the Indonesian translation rights

  11. I know you are bursting with pride and adoration. What a gift to a child to have grandparents such as you and Pat!
