April 24, 2014 (this day)

It’s striking to look back and see that the post about my uncle followed the post about my father.

 

I’m waiting now for his funeral.  After that I hope to see his first grandchild.

 

An interesting (to me) aside.  I asked my mother last night what killed her grandfather, my uncle’s grandfather, and she said he was hit by a train.  Drunk?  I asked.  Suicide?  She said well, maybe.
