Most often we are led to a cemetery that points out an important person in history. This is a personal introduction to my grandpa.
Though he served in World War One, he never talked of it much or made a big deal of it. He did his duty as a PVT in the US Army overseas. But what really made him stand out in my mind and heart was how he always lit up when company came. He loved our visits.. our summers were filled with helping him pick strawberries or swimming in a spring-fed creek where I met my namesake ( a lil otter came darting right into my face when I was about 9 yrs old in that creek ) Life was simple then. I remember a tale of how Grandpa, when building a house, hit his thumb with a hammer.. that he never uttered a word but just kept on working. Somewhere there is a lesson, perhaps one that tells you to keep going even in pain, that life doesn't stand still or stop to allow you to heal.. that you heal as you go on. I yet miss visiting him.. perhaps with your visit there he'll always have that company near.
Which holiday did my grandpa die?
