Today would have been my grandfather's 100th birthday. I didn't realize it until my mom posted about it on Facebook.
I was very close to my maternal grandparents. My childhood home wasn't a happy one; my grandma and "Pa" Lewis made my world more secure than it would have been without them. I miss them and will be thinking of them along with the rest of my beloved dead in the next couple of days (All Souls is November 2).
Here is a picture of my grandparents at my parents' wedding in January of 1973.
Left to right: my grandfather Marvin Lewis, my mom, my dad, and my grandmother Ora Lee Lewis.
Happy 100th Birthday, Pa. I love you. I miss you.
