There is no one in this world who could embarrass me better than this man. He would come to my soccer games running up and down the sideline yelling at me to “Put some stink on it!” More often than not, it was pretty obvious which black girl he belonged to. I remember trying to convince my mom not to let him come on many occasions or going to restaurants and shrinking away at the attention he attracted. He said exactly what he thought at all times.

I can’t think of a time when he actually called me Elani. It was always “Beautiful” or “Renee”. He was the first person who made me believe I was.

He was hilarious, unfiltered, problematic, ride or die, brilliant, loving and sensitive. He was one of those cool grandpas. Not the kind that gave you candy and toys. The kind that most likely involved something illegal.

I didn’t know him in the earliest years of my life and when I think back over the last few, I am so thankful for these memories. I hope he knows how important he was to so many people and how much we loved him.❤️

I’m getting really good at traveling and having one photo to show for it 🤙🏾 If only I’d had some white socks
So proud of you Brookey and happy I got to spend the weekend with one of my best friends in her new city! Here’s hoping to being closer in 2018!
