I know this isn’t related to real estate but I wanted to take a minute to write about my grandfather. He has been on my mind a lot lately. He passed away 1 and a half years ago and I was so fortunate to have him in my life for 28 years. The unusual thing is that my grandfather was only 50 years old when I was born and because he was semi retired we spent a lot of time together. Unfortunately my mother passed away when I was 11. I was an only child and my mom was my grandparents only child which made me the only son or grandson in a fairly small family. Because of this I spent a LOT of time with my grandparents. Lets be honest, I was spoiled! My grandfather and I did just about everything together.
In so many ways, my grandparents were like parents to me. When your young it isn’t the coolest thing to be hanging out with your grandparents all the time but it never bothered me.
My dad is an amazing dad and most of you may know him as Carlos Aguilar, the main guy within our real estate business. In so many ways I have been so lucky and I really hope that any young readers who may read this realize the value of spending time with and appreciating your elders. You only have so much time with them. Take advantage of it and and take in all of the wisdom they can offer you.
I know this is a bit of a random post but thank you for letting me take a minute to share it with you. James Albert Evans April 24, 1930-October 4th, 2008.
Thanks again for letting me share.
