Sweet Surprise at Mom’s Book Signing

Sweet Surprise at Mom’s Book Signing November 14, 2013

I thought this was sweet:

What an honor! This photo from the Grand Rapids book signing is of a wonderful 95-year-old World War II vet who gave me a signed copy of HIS own book!Thank you to all the great folks in Grand Rapids who came out tonight for the book signing. It’s always great to connect with Michiganders! And thank you to the great staff at Barnes & Noble. The “Good Tidings and Great Joy” book tour continues tomorrow in Wausau, WI.

    I once stood in line for hours in the snow to have your mom sign my book. 🙂 She was very sweet and thanked my dad for his service when she saw his Army hat. Truly a class act.

    I met your mom and dad yesterday in Columbus, Ohio. They enjoyed how i got my name. They are such wonderful people. It is no surprise why you turned out to be such a wonderful lady and mom. It was an honor meeting them. You are all a very inspirational family. Thank you.

    Love those vets. I am curious what his book is as my hubby has a WW2 interest as do I.

  • His name is Virgil Westdale and you can get his book on Amazon.com. the name of his book is Blue Skys And Thunder. (this info was lifted off of the comments section in SP’s original fb post)
