Goodbye, Big George!

On Thursday, February 5th, my grandfather passed away, just two days after he celebrated his 86th birthday. "Big George" lived a wonderful, happy life and thankfully passed away peacefully, without the need for any pain medication. Up until the morning he died, he continued to flirt with the nurses and tell everyone jokes, most of which were the same jokes he had been telling for twenty years! ~That is how I will remember him!

Below is a photo of my father and grandfather, taken at my Aunt Susie's wedding.

Grandpa, Heather, and I


  1. So sorry to hear about your grandfather!

  2. Thanks, Holl. He was a great guy and you have several of his best traits: sense of humor and love of life. I miss him. Love, dad.
