Today We Celebrate...

Today we celebrate my grandfather and the amazing life he lived.  I could go on about what a devoted husband, loving father and grandfather he was, but Grandpa was a man of few words.  He often joked about how Grandma could take a sentence and make it a long-winded story... he also noted on several occasions that I inherited that gift? curse? trait from her.  Hence this blog.  So, Grandpa, rather than go on and on with every single detail, I'll keep it short and sweet (just like you'd like it) and commemorate your life through pictures.
