Ode To My Grandfather


Yesterday, my 89 year old grandfather died suddenly in his home. He was at home with my grandmother, his wife of 72 years. He leaves us with so many fond memories and phrases that will resound in my head for the rest of my life. The one that rings the strongest, "See ya Saturday," the phrase he would always utter to us kids as we said goodbye regardless of the day or day we would see him again. So to my grandfather whom I love so very much, "See ya Saturday!"
Love your granddaughter, Maureen....one of ten.
