5 years

Well this post was suppose to be this heart-felt tribute to my Grandfather but I got pulled away before I could write it. So here it is, a little late but better late than never. It has been 5 years since my Grandpa passed away and today would have been his birthday. I can't tell you how much I miss him, everything about him from his wisdom and amazing knowledge of the stock market to his country humor and his life experiences. I mean how many men can say they left their dream of playing Major League Baseball and headed back home because Farming was a better living back then. Or how many men can say they went quail hunting with Dizzy and Daffy Dean along with other members of the famous Gashouse gang? I have so many stories that swirl around my head and so many things I try to remember so I can make sure to pass along what a treasure my Grandfather was to my daughter and my future children, nieces and nephews. My Brother and I were so lucky that even though my parents were divorced my Mom made a point of fostering a relationship with my Grandparents. And once I was able to drive, we visited them all the time, I swear that sometimes we visited them every weekend. I am so thankful that we were able to have the time and the relationship we had with my Grandpa, that I have so many videos and pictures and memories that are still so vivid and will never be forgotten. I love you Grandpa, Happy Birthday!
