Qualities and pride - by Chaya Simon (as told by Efraim)
In Pirkei Avos it says that the crown of a person is their grandchildren, how the grandchild behaves reflects back on their grandparent. You should always reflect and remember what a special z'chus it is to have such an incredible Zaidy and you should always work hard to be his crown. You are his first grandchild and will always have a very special place in Zaidy's crown. I would only ask that you think about your Zaidy often, his kindness, his soft manner, his amazing dedication to Torah study and serving HaShem and most of all, with all of that, his incredible humility. He is a role model for all of us to aspire to. He was able to elevate others simply by being in their presence. We have a lot to learn from Zaidy, I hope together we can implement his characteristics into our own lives.
