Summer 2013: It was absolutely wonderful to spend quality time with my Abu Coco last summer when he came to visit us for a few months. Although I’m not usually one to judge a book by its cover, there are some people whose eyes can tell you a story before their words have time to make a sound. My grandpa is one of those people. He has the most beautiful twinkle in his green eyes and every time he smiles, he smiles with his eyes. He is incredibly wise and I really admire him.
