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.
