Celebrating Grandpa

Friday was my grandfather's memorial service in Wisconsin. He was 82, had a good life and was very active until the end. It was nice having a day of remembrance, and hearing the stories from family, friends and even people who worked for him years ago. He knew how to talk to anyone and have a good time. We rode his prized Cadillac to the service and the kids balanced spoons on their noses -- one of his not-so-hidden talents. We ended with a fish fry down the road from his house. It was a good day, celebrating a man who will be missed.
