In memory...

I don't usually get too personal on this blog....but I just wanted to take a moment...

This past weekend, I lost my grandfather to a long battle with Alzheimer's. He was a man who came to this country to forge a better life for his family. He worked 3 jobs every day, without complaint, to make ends meet and to put food on the table for his wife and children. He had a great love of people, of nature, and of the world in general. From my grandfather, I learned a love for the written word, the importance of kindness, and the meaning of honor.

I live every day trying to be a good person and to make him and his memory proud.

Grandpa, you are missed, but I will carry you in my heart always.


please excuse my sporadic absences for the next week or so....


  1. Oh, Christine. I am so sorry for your loss. *hugs* Your grandpa sounds like an incredibly inspirational man man. I'll bet he's tremendously proud of you.
