Goodbye Grandpa

My grandpa died yesterday. He had just turned 90 and we had a great party in his honor a few months ago. He was a bomber pilot during World War II. He was the editor of a newspaper in upstate New York. He loved music and has spent a large portion of the past few decades or so putting together an extensive record collection of mostly Big Band era music. He was on top of his game and still living alone even at 90.

He was hilarious, unique, intelligent and I miss him.

I'm so sorry. He sounded like a great man and someone who lived a very interesting life.
