I wish I had the words to describe what Grondy meant to me and all of those here at PT, but sadly I don't. All I know to leave here is two quotes:
"We're so busy watching out for what's just ahead of us that we don't take the time to enjoy where we are" -Calvin and Hobbes
"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened" -Dr. Seuss
Good old silly, clever, wise Grondy. How I miss him. But it is good to see his posts in older threads. Thank you for this lovely thread, Leelee.
You are welcome Am, my honor. Yes one year and my tears have barely dried and they came fresh again as I pondered Grondmaster and the many wise and truly hilarious things he said. Such a rich and full life. I had forgot that he had a son as well as a daughter and then the granddaughter came around the time of his departure across the sea. I remember how proud he was , I could almost feel the joy and pride lift from the page he wrote about it on and I was so happy for him. My prayers are with his family, it has been my experience at times that it takes nearly a year to even truly comprehend the loss of a loved one and start over in a new way.
I just took the time to read all through Grondmaster's memorial thread and I highly recommend it to all those who want to know a bit about the character of this wonderful man, grondmaster of this council. And to find out just how devoted so many were and still are to him. The link also shows a picture of him, his dear gentle faces so fits his avy, just wonderful. love you forever Grondy
