We cannot imagine anything more wonderful than this news! Congratulations to your entire family for your strength and fight! May you all be healthy and happy together for a long long time.

Your grandpapa sounds like he, too, was an amazing fighter. Basil the Squirrel gave us a whole new respect for those fluffy pests. Thanks for sharing. My great grandma's people on momma's side also came from Budapest. From her I have an instinctive love of veal paprikash, paprika, dark rye bread (with butter, of course)!
