Dear Leyton, 
Your grandpa would have been 64 today.  Four years ago, we threw him a surprise party for his 60th birthday.  Gramma worked SO HARD on that party, to make sure it was a surprise and to get everyone together and to make it fun.  

We sent out invites, and decorated the gym - in those days, Gramma & Grandpa went to Westside Assembly of God, which was really close to their house.  Your daddy & I helped decorate, putting little scenes together on the tables.  We had picture books and stuff laid out on other tables for ppl to look at, too.  

I don't think we could have imagined how much God would bless us with this party.  Lots of ppl came to celebrate your grandpa.  He was well-loved because he loved everyone, and showed it.  He's been my inspiration, and is why I work so hard to make sure you grow up loving ppl.  Of course - you are naturally a W, outgoing and friendly, and you never meet a stranger!  I love seeing that in you.  

Anyway, back to the party.  There were presents and cake, of course, and we had a luncheon as well.  I'm looking for the pictures... 

Anthony helped create the golf islands for the tables.  : ) 
They turned out realllllly neat!  

Lots of ties!  Heh. 
And, this guy may look familiar... 
"Happy happy birthday - from the Birthday King!"
After the party, Grandpa set his balloons free back into the wild.  *laugh*

It was a marvelous celebration and I hope you enjoy the pictures.  We had a lot of fun, and Grandpa WAS surprised (well, at least until the day of the party - Great Unlce Frank & Aunt Dorothy sort of tipped him off to the party right before he walked in, because they were lost!  Whoops! *grin*)!  

Love you lots, 
Aunt Carrie
