Remembering my Grandfather....
This post has nothing to do with glass fishing floats, but something much more important. I recently lost one of the most important people in my life. My hero. My grandfather. He was an amazing man. He taught me many things....how to drive in the pasture when I was 13, how to play cards & dominoes, how to make tents out of sheets when I was a little girl, how to jump rope with licorice, how to stand on my head, how to pick the perfect watermelon, along with many other odd & end things. The most significant thing he taught me was how important family is. For that, I am grateful.
I miss him dearly, but I find comfort knowing that he is with my Grandmother & the rest of our family that has passed. I have many memories to reflect on throughout the rest of my life. I was fortunate to have had him in my life as long as I did. He was 93 years old.
Grandpa, I love you & will miss you always.
