Grandpa passed away while my dad was still a teenager. I never met my Grandpa but I believe that I would have enjoyed him. Dad has many memories of his father, tucked away in his heart.
Grandpa had a great musical ear. He played several musical instruments, all self taught! He played the "fiddle" by ear. He was frequently asked to play at the local Square Dance. My dad has his father's musical talant. Dad plays the piano, harmonica and guitar by ear. Sadly the musical gene must have skipped my generation. I can't play a lick. Dad and I laugh about it every so often.
During the Great Depression, Grandpa frequently told his kids, "if we dont grow it or can't make it, we won't have it". This was the way in their generation.
Thank you for raising my sweet Dad to be the wonderful man that he is, you did a good job! We love you Grandpa.
Thank you Always in my heart for so kindly sponsoring Grandpa George. I shall be forever grateful.
