"He waited so long to give it to me because he just wanted me to understand and appreciate the moments that we had together when I was little," explained Ren.

"He used to do this ‘See Ya’ game. And he would run into the wall over and over and over and I would die," remembered Ren. She hasn't been able to read everything in the journals, yet, but what she has read has made it the best gift she's ever received. Ren's grandfather described the cute little games they used to play in such a beautiful way that his words would make you reminisce about your own childhood memories, as well.

"One of your favorite things is for me to push the button on your clock and do my silly dance. When I say 'Lauren do it,' you sit in your bed and say 'Papa' and I keep dancing, falling, running into the wall, turning around like an uncoordinated fat ballerina, and you keep laughing," wrote Petrillo in the journal. This grandfather has some pretty amazing advice for all of the other grandparents out there. What he learned from the gift is a gift in itself.

It took years for Ron to make this incredible gift for Ren, and he's more than happy to be able to relive them with her. "I just want the grandparents that are in their 40s and 50s to know that they can do the same thing. If that’s the only thing that comes out of this then that’s just fine," he said. Let this be a reminder of how important it is to make time for family!
