In Loving Memory.

(1919-2009)

Despite the massive amount of posts that need to happen, I must stop and pay tribute to a pretty amazing man we lost this week. Grandpa, (aka Robert Harold Smith), left us after a very long and happy 89 years. He was known for his love of golf, John Wayne, 'sweets', California, but most of all - his family.

Thank you Grandpa for always being so good to us. Thank you for letting me put curlers in your hair when I was a little girl. Thank you for being my little buddy this past year and always wanting to hold my hand. I love that even on that peaceful night you left us, that is exactly what we were doing.

I love you to bits.

Laurie
