A Grandson's Memories
18 December 2003 | by (Warrnambool Australia) – See all my reviews

This wonderful movie shows what it is like to have the best grandparent/s in the world. My grandmother was as special as the grandfather in this movie. While watching this movie my memories of my grandmother all came flooding back as if they happened yesterday. Michael Landon showed us that even when a wonderful grandparent has passed away, it is the grandchildren's memories of love and laughter that will keep grandparent's alive forever. Thanks Michael Landon for yet another excellent movie.
