He and my Granny had been married for over 65 years and had 3 children, my Aunt Jane, my mom, and my Uncle Phil. For some reason it was always interesting to me that each of their children had only children. Jane's son David lives in Florida and Phil's daughter Melissa lives in Texas. And me, of course!

|This was the driveway to their home in Giddings, TX. I wish I had a picture of the house, as its shape always reminded me of Pizza Hut!|
|Playing office! Yes, that IS a pink rotary phone!|
|I loved helping Granddad mow the yard! I was DRIVING!|

I'm so grateful I had my Granddad in my life for as long as I did. He was a character and I'll miss him.
