WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY CAN MAKE

IT'S FUNNY HOW MY LAST POST WAS ABOUT BIRTH, BUT AS ONE LIFE BEGUN, ANOTHER ENDED. MY GRANDFATHER PASSED AWAY PEACEFULLY ON WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AGED 97. DON'T LET THE YEARS FOOL YOU - HE HAD A SHARP MIND AND GOOD SKIN! A NOBLE MAN WITH A HAPPY-GO-LUCKY CHARACTER AND THE MOST IMPECCABLE DRESS SENSE. HE NEVER BOTHERED ANYONE WITH HIS PAIN OR SUFFERING. I ADMIRED HIM FOR HIS STRENGTH, HIS UNSELFISHNESS AND HIS INTELLECT. I ONLY HAVE FOND MEMORIES OF HIM AND HE WILL BE MISSED DEARLY...THE PHOTO IS FROM 1987, 'BAPA' AS WE WOULD CALL HIM, AGED 73 AND ME ALL DOLLED UP FOR 3RD BIRTHDAY. I'LL BACK TO BLOGGING SOON GUYS, RIGHT NOW MY GRANDFATHER NEEDS A GRACIOUS SEND OFF.
