We're going to start a project on biographies so find one you really like.
Do you know any good biographies? I have to read one for school.
Yeah actually, I do. I have one about Grandpa Socky.
The biography went through most of his life, starting as a teen and ending at a few years ago. He did a lot in his life...
...He fought in the Army in World War II....
...And after it he worked three jobs at a time just to pay the bills and keep food on the table.
At the end of his biography are letters written to him by each of his children. They all describe him as the way I knew him: the most hardworking, kind, and giving man. He used to have a giant garden where they grew lots of their own food because they couldn't afford to buy it, and yet after Sunday mass he would pass out vegetables to whoever needed them. He gave everything he had to help out those around him and to take care of his family. At his funeral, we were encouraged to take candy from his infamous candy tin. Even after he was gone he was still giving.
