The Blessings of Grandsons

What advice do I tell my grandson? I listen to him. ~ Roy Haynes

Aaron2011Aaron Christopher Glass was the first grandson, born to Jim Jr. and Suzy Glass.  He will complete his Masters degree this year and take the tests for CPA.  He is married and has two adopted children, along with his wife, Wendy, of course.  He plays saxophone and piano, and writes music. They live in Utah but hopefully he will find a job up here in the northwest and return to this area.

Mark2011Mark Christopher Glass was Peter’s second son.  He lives nearby with Breanna and their son, Matias Robert Glass.  They live on Whidbey Island in Puget Sound.  He works on cars and helps is mother-in-Law with her business of landscaping.

Nickolas2011Nicholas Dean Glass is Mark’s brother.  He was born with Spina Bifida and is wheelchair bound.  He does work from time to time for agencies that use people with disabilities to take theater tickets or fold towels for laundries that serve hotels and hospitals.

Joe Glass 2010Joseph Glass is the first boy for Mike and Nan Glass. He is in his first year of college.  Joe is a very smart boy and excellent writer.  He amazes me with his insight both written and in conversation.  He was a wrestler in high school and did very well.  He did go to state but I don’t remember how far he got.  Joe is very tall and handsome.

CharlieSam2011Charlie Glass is Joe’s younger brother.  He is shown here with cousin, Samantha.  Charlie is a Junior in High school.  He was also a wrestler, but this year he broke his foot in wrestling so had to stay out the rest of the year.  Charlie and Joe have an older sister, Jane who is in her second year of college.  Joe is also Tall and handsome.

100_0204Andrew Warren Glass (Drew) is the first born of Andy and Lori Glass.  He, also is a wrestler.  In this picture Deb and I had taken him out to lunch and this was the piece of cake they served him.  I think it fed his family too that week.  Drew also plays classical guitar.  I didn’t know a guitar could make such beautiful sounds.  He also plays in a small band with friends and they have played at public places.

PeterMark2011Peter Mark Glass Jr. is son of Peter and brother to Nicholas, and Mark.  He is a smart young man who has much interest in Science and modeling.  He lives in Texas with his sister, Angela.  He has won honors for his school work.

My three local Grandsons. 2012This is a very recent picture of Joe, Drew, and Charlie on the occasion of Drew’s taking of third in the State in wrestling.

These handsome and smart young men pictured above are Jim Sr. and mine.  They are all young men that we are very proud of.  We have watched them grow from infancy to the men they have become.  There is nothing like the hugs they all give me when they see me.  I cherish those moments.  I love to hear about their interests and pleasures and dreams of the future.  We are so very blessed to be called Grandma and Grandpa.

    You have some very handsome grandsons Bertie. You have every reason to be proud of them. I don’t have any grandchildren, something that I miss.

    Have a Blessed Easter.
