That was a wonderful tribute to your family and upbringing. I’d like to say that grief goes away but it doesn’t, it just changes so there are more happy days and the memories more often make us smile than cry. My Uncle Don, your Grandpa probably read your piece with a smile on his face , a lifting of his shoulders and turned to tell the others in heaven how proud he is and that life goes on.
