"Most men, they'll tell you a story straight through. It won't be complicated, but it won't be interesting either." -Big Fish
As many of you know, my grandfather was one of the best story tellers around. His autobiography, Shine, Mister?, can attest to that. However, there was nothing like hearing his stories in person with all the extra flavor he gave them. I will always cherish the memories I have of listening to my grandfather tell his stories, along with all the other precious memories, like when he would turn me into a pizza and play "round ball, round ball" with me as a little girl. These are things I will remember forever and proudly pass on to my own children one day.
To the best grandpa that all the seven seas have ever seen,
You are always loved, never forgotten, and my thumb buddy forever.
