A Memorial

It's funny how a person can be a part of your life for a very short amount time and yet have such a profound impact on who you are. 

My husband's mentor and one of his dearest friends passed away last night.

This man was a reminder of my own Grandpa. 
He was ornery. 
He was gentle. 
He was full of stories. 
I told him once how much I enjoyed spending time with him...that he brought back so many memories of my own Grandpa and I was so glad that my kids had an opportunity to know such an amazing person. 

Our lives have been forever altered. He has given my husband great joy in creating and building knives. He opened the door to another world & he will never be forgotten. 


  1. I am so sorry for your lose....and thrilled that you got to have such a wonderful man in your lives. It sounds like he was a fantastic gift.
