This Teen's Grandpa Filled 3 Notebooks With Their Memories, And It Will Make You Cry!


Lauren Blank is a teenager who has a strong bond with her grandfather, Ron Petrillo. Ron helped raise Lauren from a young age, and they spent a lot of time together when she was a little kid. On her 16th birthday, she received the most beautiful gift from her grandfather: a notebook filled with their adventures!


From when Lauren was 2 years old until she turned 5, her grandpa documented every single memory they shared.

“The notebook is just filled with daily things that we did,” Blank told. “We went to the zoo a lot, and flew kites, and throughout the notebooks, he gave me advice.”

At first, when Lauren received the gift she was a little confused but when she started to read the notes inside…

“I was completely in shock and couldn’t even cry at first,” Blank said. “Then I saw my whole family was crying and I realized this was a once-in-a-lifetime gift.”
