    And now you’ve spread the tears even further. Brilliantly done, sir, to seat me in a diner booth right alongside such history and storytelling. Will be hugging my family much harder. Happy and peaceful thoughts to you and yours, and all my best as always.

    You have such an amazing gift. What I wouldn’t give to be able to put thought to paper the way you do. By sharing this story you have given in the opportunity to learn more about two people I have loved all my life. Thank you for that!

    Normally just a lurker of your blog via Wil’s and TaoPoker, but having just watched my grandmother do the same last month, I can’t help but say I cried a little too then and again just now.

    I have come back and read this several times since last week and I cry every time. I had not heard their story until the day after Grandpa died and it was a beautiful story but I love the way you wrote it. Love you.
