"As Papi (granddad) my true role is to be there for my grandson, especially when he has asked me if I will always be there for him. In addition, I guide him, listen to him, and provide support to him. I try to become a role model for him that he can be proud of. One of the biggest gifts that I received from my grandson is seeing the world through his eyes. When I see the world through his eyes, I see things that I would have missed or things that I took for granted. Finally, I get to spoil him and he gets to spoil me. As a Papi, that is one of the rewards that I really enjoy."
