"The problem here is a totalitarian uniformity, a cult-like mentality such that even allies are enemies if they fail to follow the Exact Party Line. " - Phyllis Chesler

I Love You Grandpa

Today I lost my last surviving grandparent. This picture was taken in January of 2009 and it was the last time he was pretty much the man I knew. We spoke, although he was a little slow with words, and he laughed and made jokes. Here's some video from that day. I visited my Grandpa once after this but he couldn't remember my name. He did recognize my face and seemed excited to see me. But this is how I'll choose to remember him.

Grandpa, I know you're happy now.

So sorry for your loss.

Oh I'm sorry Lauren. He seemed like a real character - bet he could tell some stories. Not a lot of older people will sit and talk with a camera on them. Not sure why but the videos made me smile. I hope you have some wonderful memories and now - he knows who you are. :)
