Jack is mine favorite Grandpa. When he was young he survived a nature/water disaster in the Netherlands in 1953. He has written a book about his experience, called ‘mijn boekentas'(mine satchel). His story has always inspired me!
When i was born mine grandpa loved me the first time he saw me. Everyone tell me that i’m his favorite because i look like is mother. When i was a baby he let me sleep on his belly for more then 2 hours. Nobody was alloud to touch me, not even mine mother!
