I would like to wish my grandpa a happy birthday.

Grandpa, I want to wish you the very best 90th birthday that anyone could ever have. I only wish that I could be there in person to tell you how much I truly love and admire you for the man that you are. You have demonstrated nothing but positivity to me for as long as I can remember. Effortlessly, you have provided a sense of security and stability for me for my entire life. You are everything that anyone could ever ask for in a grandfather and more.

Thank you for being the wonderful man that you are, and sharing your whole-hearted goodness with me throughout my life. The sincerity in your love and guidance has always been obvious, and has had a profound impact on countless people including me and my family. My fond memories of spending time with you are something that I cherish now and will forever. You are truly a remarkable man.

With sincere love,

Jeff Phillips
