When I took care of Robert, if I gave him a grapefruit in the morning with his breakfast -- he would throw his arms in the air and say "I'm a king!!" I had never seen anyone love grapefruit as much as he did! (He was on dialysis, so we couldn't give him grapefruit all the time.)

He's been gone for years now, but I still search for grapefruit recipes and think of him every time!! And I hear him saying, "I'm a KING!"
