Happy Birthday, Grandpa Cichon

Today is Grandpa Cichon’s 89th birthday in heaven…

gramps and aunt mary

I imagine him wearing a leisure suit up there cutting a rug to celebrate… just like here– dancing with his sister Mary (who, along with her twin Olga, was also born on Valentine’s Day, four years before Gramps.)

It’s a good deal that the man with the biggest heart ever was born on Valentine’s Day.
