Even the birds are mourning

My Grandfather passed away last night.  It was expected... he's been suffering from bladder cancer.  All the same, the world now has a shortage of awesome and I'm sad.  He's been one of the biggest inspirations in my life.  Intelligent, hard-working, creative, kind.  He was career Navy, a WWII vet, an avid bird-watcher, was pulling tree stumps in his late 60s (maybe 70s, I'm terrible with ages), and used to grow tomato plants taller than him.  I wrote a whole post on what an awesome carver he was, go take a look and be amazed.

I'll miss you, Grandpa 'Let.  I hope Heaven has more birds than you can name. 


  1. Jen, I'm so so sorry. Hugs to you and your family.

  2. Oh, Jennifer, I'm sorry for your loss. I'll keep you and your family in my prayers. The ending of your post about more birds in heaven than could be named did me in, tears were flowing. Hugs to you guys.
