I apologize for being absent from the blog for awhile. I have been spending time at the hospital to be with my grandfather as he battled pneumonia. Early this morning he passed peacefully with his family around him. I am so grateful that he lived a long and happy life. He was such an example to all of us- never short tempered, always laughing and ready to tell a story. He was literally a ray of sunshine even as he lay in his hospital bed. Love you and miss you grandpa. Thank you for showing us all what it means to be good people.
