My Great-Grandpa Melvin This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

By Anonymous, Fort Dodge, IA

My great-grandpa’s name is Melvin. He has 5 kids, and one of his daughters, Jackie, is my grandma. He is originally from Fort Dodge, but now lives in Scottsdale, Arizona. He is 84 years old with a height of 5’9” with thin white hair and glasses. Every summer, he comes to Fort Dodge for about a month to stay with my grandma at her house. He is always wearing a turquoise stone ring and either khaki pants or shorts with his khaki colored velcro shoes. He only has a few shirts that he wears, but some of the main ones are a brown shirt with surfboards on the front, a black button up with palm trees, and a yellow polo with stripes. You can usually find him on my grandma’s recliner chair in her living room watching either basketball or the news on TV. My great grandpa is one of the funniest and most positive people I know. My grandpa’s sense of humor and positivity have helped him in his battle with cancer.
