My grandfather died a couple months ago. He was a wonderful person. He was a basketball player and a shepherd and a soldier and a great dad. My mom laughs just like him.
At his funeral my uncle shared this quote from his personal history, and it sums up what I hope I prioritize in our little family of me and Kevin and Claire and whoever else joins our brood.
"We went without paintings on our walls, but our home was always filled with music."
