I was excited to receive an email message from a member of moms family that I yelled in excitement an startled handsome. I think I surprised myself just as much. I have not met many of her family and was excited to receive names of relatives that lead back to my granddad. I had gotten his full name and moms’ mom’s name and was trying to locate the lineage and to see where my moms family came from.

My granddad was a veteran of the second world war and I had the privilege of meeting him as a preteen in early seventies. He was an awesome down to earth man. He stayed with us for a short term and then returned to England around 72. We all missed him. While he was here he taught me to look at things from different lenses. He was blind and yet could tell a flower by its scent and birds by their song. He loved to walk through the gardens. hmm I think I know where my love of long walks comes from. I am excited that these new friends have emigrated and live not to far away.
