I could not let this day go by without mentioning that it is the 99th birthday of my Grandpa, Sheldon Rasho Stremmel. Shed - as many refer to him - was born on August 14, 1907, and it has been a true blessing to have him as my grandfather.
Pictured here with Grandpa is his sister and my great aunt, Frances (Stremmel) Briney.
The entire family is extremely thankful for the care that my Uncle Roger provides for Grandpa each day. We know that 99 is quite a milestone, but we are already looking forward, Lord willing, to seeing Grandpa's face next year on the "Today Show Smucker's Board" where Willard Scott greets the birthday boys and girls.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GRANDPA! We are praying for you today - and every day.
