Could there be anything more wholesome than this 91-year-old grandpa’s emails to his family? Granddaughter Madison Taylor treasures her online correspondence with the elderly man. In fact, she thinks Grandpa Norman’s emails are so heartwarming, she just had to share some of her favorites on TikTok. We think they’re pretty cute, too!

In this grandpa’s emails to his loved ones, it’s clear to see that he’s an incredibly generous person. Many of his messages are about clothing or food items he wants to offer to his family members. For example, when he had special jackets for his 90th birthday, the elderly man was quick to ask if anyone wanted one. He even included a photo of himself modeling the garment.

In other emails, Grandpa Norman passed along some of his wisdom and life advice. Some of these messages were practical, such as his hot tips on shopping at Costco.

“If you live near a Costco, even though many of their items are ‘super-sized,’ they have many good deals, including pharmaceuticals, furniture, and appliances,” he wrote.

Other times, he had something more motivational to share. One of the notes his granddaughter saved included some wise words from his father (her great-grandfather).

“As I was growing up, my father told me: 1. Stay humble. 2. Work hard. 3. Remember how lucky we are,” Grandpa Norman said.
