Rest In Peace

The world lost a great man today, my grandfather passed away at age 90. He was humble, witty, creative, and one of my favorite people on this planet. He fought in World War II, grew up during the Great Depression, and understood the importance of education by helping to send my sister, cousins and I to college (who have now become a pharmacist, engineer, librarian, artist and teacher). He had a positive influence on my life, and I am a better person because of him.

Below is a photograph from his high school days, and my corresponding painting.

I'll start posting again next week, or whenever I feel up to it. Right now, words escape me...
