He Had a Good Life at 95

My grandpa, whom I mentioned here, passed away last week.  He was in hospice care for barely a week and then he died.  This past weekend we went to the funeral in rural Illinois.

He was a really good person.  Quick to smile, full of stories, and most of them were true.  He was the only 80 something I knew that could email and had a cell phone; although use of both declined in the last several years.  Even though we lived miles apart, I  thought of him often.  He had 4 kids, 11 grandkids and 13 great grandkids.  I’m sure that’s not a record but it’s certainly a lot.  Thank you grandpa, for all the memories, and the fun.
