My paternal grandfather was a farmer as was his father.He died when I was 9 but I remember his team of horses that he used to plow the fields and I got to sit on their backs as he went down the rows. He loved rhubarb pie and my grandmother made the best. He had the biggest vegetable garden that supplied us food for the winter as my mother and grandmother canned everything. My father hunted so there was plenty of meat. I guess you could say they were poor but with all the love and being surrounded by the security of family made up for it. He also loved limberger cheese which my grandmother made him keep in the cellar. My memories of him are held dear to my heart. We all miss you very much.
