Tribute


My wonderful Grampa died today. Born on the 4th of July, he was an all-American boy his whole life. He loved hot dogs, potato chips, fireworks, fishing, swimming in the lake, growing tomatoes, and writing poetry. He was 95.

He was a difficult man with an amazing wit. And we loved him so.


I miss him already.

Sorry for your loss. It sounds like your Grandpa lived a long and wonderful life, but it's always too soon to lose someone you love. Think of the good times, even if it makes you cry as well as smile.
