This touches my heart. I, too, have a grampa I never met and his ancient ancestors came from Genoa, Italy. Thanks for sharing your story.
What a beautiful tribute! This gave me goosebumps reading it. I never met any of my grandfathers, as they all died before I was born, but I do treasure the pictures and stories I hear of them. This is well done, excellent writing! ^_^
He didn't find the gold he was originally looking for, but he did find the greatest treasure all. This was your inheritance!
Lovely tribute to a wonderful man. The streets of America are not paved in gold, but while he was here, he found the ones that were. Thanks for sharing.
What a heritage he left his family! And in particular I loved the last words "See you at home". That says it all for me!
