Finding their voices: Kids have something to say

Edgar's picture

Molly Miller, a fifth grader at Timber Lake School, won second place in an essay contest sponsored by the Oahe Area Retired Teachers Assn. at Mobridge. The theme was grandparents. Molly is the daughter of Robi and Tony Miller of Isabel and granddaughter of Jerome and Nancy Miller of Isabel and Jerry Hulm of Rapid City.

Jerome Miller is an amazing grandpa. He’s funny and overall just a character. Jerome is a good person and a good choice for the AARP SD Grandparent of the Year. He is nice and kindhearted. He always wants to see how we, his family, are doing. I hope you enjoy learning about my Grandpa Jerome.

My grandpa likes everyone he meets. When you meet him, he’ll shake your hand and ask your name, and tell you his. My grandpa likes telling jokes, and most of the time, you’ll come out with a smile when you leave. Jerome likes seeing people smile, and he likes making people smile. When my grandpa’s dad died, and we were at the wake, he took me to see my grandpa one last time. He smiled and said, “Doesn’t he look peaceful.”
