It's always so hard when you lose someone. My Grandfather was an amazing man who led one heck of a life. He will leave behind a glorious legacy. There are not enough words for how astounding this man was. He was a Doctor, a Park Ranger at Yellowstone NP, a Scout Leader, a known Wild life Photographer, a carpenter, a great Husband to my GG, and a hilarious Jokester. When Tyler and I were young, he and Dad built us a play house in the backyard. It was so awesome, just like *that*, he would make the most interesting things. He always made sure to have Red Vines and Cashews in full stock before a trip to come see us. And he never hesitated to wake us up at 4 am every morning. He was so SMART. He would just read and read and read, like a sponge he'd soak in the information. He taught us to see beauty in nature, bird watching, and going into the Arizona Desert. He always found a way to be funny. Always sharing dirty jokes with us, making us laugh/uncomfortable (lol).
Grandpa (aka"Gramps") it pains me to know you're gone. But I am forever grateful you played a major part in my life. Because of you I will always love photography and I PROMISE I will always see the beauty in nature. RIP Neal Cissel
