Remembering Gramps

Here is a man who spoke four words to me over the course of time that I knew him. When I was at his house one time, he asked of me, "You been here before?" Even though this was the only personal message I have received from this man, I still learn from him quite frequently.

Five years ago, he passed away. Wifey's grandfather left quite a legacy. When we spend time with Wifey's grandma, conversation naturally goes towards the good times she had with Grandpa. When we talk about parenting with my in-laws, tales of Grandpa come up as well. But I see a lot of Grandpa in my father-in-law. They each play the banjo equally well.

Here's to remembering Grandpa, who in his last days ate only black licorice.
