This time it was in the newspaper mainly about grandparents.Grandpa - a war veteran, a decorated.Grandma in the years of selfless work in the rear of the medal was awarded.Their photos are placed in the most prominent place.Under them - two columns of the poetic text, which is a week polished Marinka and dad.
