"As a child, my grandfather was told that he was never going to amount to anything. He probably has dyslexia, but is just undiagnosed. Despite all these comments from friends and loved ones, he not only married and had a son, but he also was a loyal employee to his company and also served in the National Guard and volunteered as a local firefighter. Though all these things are amazing and filling, most people know him for how he cares for people. He makes an effort to get to know people and never finds himself someplace where he can't make a friend. My papa has always gone above and beyond for me and all the people around him. Even while I am living states away, he learned how to text so he can care for me from afar. He texts me every day. This audio is him reading just a handful of the messages that he has sent me over the last 4 years."
