Relationship: Im/migrant

My grandpa in China, gave my dad this jade. Dad was 15 years old. My dad misses his father because he died in China. My father hopes his dad is safe in heaven. Long ago, my grandpa went to the store to buy that jade to put in the temple to be blessed. Then grandpa gave it to my dad. The color of that jade is brown and green. The size of the jade is medium. The shape of that jade is a circle.The design on that jade is of a dragon. On the back of it, it shows money from a long time ago in China. The texture of that jade is smooth. The dragon is a symbol of good luck in China. This dragon reminds my dad of his father from a long time ago. One day my dad will give it to me to wear too.
