My husband’s grandfather died and we are celebrating his long, fully-lived life yesterday and today–my husband and his cousin are giving the eulogy. This man had SO. MANY. FRIENDS. And taught just about the entire town at their local church.

His children (my husband’s mom and her sister and brother) had a flower arrangement made in his honor that incorporated his tools. Chad’s grandfather, Big PawPaw was a brick mason so there are brick laying tools all fastened into a beautiful arrangement and it’s just about the most lovely thing I have ever seen.
