The Major's grandfather passed away just after Christmas this past year. He's been gone only a little over a month, but it feels much longer than that. I loved the relationship I had with him. He was a kind man. Strong and funny and faithful. I learned so much from him and continue to find myself wanting to ask him questions about this or that. He was a World War II veteran who rarely talked about his time in the war. I think the horror of war in the South Pacific was more than he cared to remember or share. He was a simple man. A frugal man. A loving man. And as our life changes yet again, I find myself missing him more than usual. He would love the direction our life is taking. He would celebrate with us, and he would have a world of wisdom to share. I miss grandpa.
