Letter to the Editor: Grandparents now playing even larger family role

News flash: There’s a special day coming up on Sunday, Sept. 12 is Grandparents Day.

These days, and for some time now, most grandparents do a lot more than just hand out cookies when the grandchildren come to visit.

More and more, grandparents are actually raising their grandchildren, or at least playing a significant role in helping to raise them.

So, grandchildren and parents, here is a special day to show how much you appreciate all that they do.

God bless all of our grandparents.
