Words well written don't do justice to a lifetime well lived.

linchpin. noun: a central cohesive source of support and stability.

Funny that I never realized it, but he was the linchpin that held us all together. After he left, slowly but surely we all spiraled out of control like a cart that losts its driver. I'm glad he wasn't around to see the aftermath.

I can honestly say that my life would not have been the same without him, and not just because he he was my grandad and hero. Now I see what remains. What did it cost him, what did he sacrifice, to provide for me when he didn't have to? He didn't even live to see the ripest fruits of his labor. Would he be proud of me? So much has happened, both good and bad, since he's been gone. No victory or celebration has been complete without him.

Three years without him is three years too many.

Thank you for being the most respected man I ever knew.
