Austin's Grandpa Mel passed away on Monday. I always found him to be a lovely, kind man but attending his memorial service made me aware of the many lives that he touched and the extraordinary life he lived.
Look closely at the flower spray; his favorite tractor is hidden inside. What a great touch. The other pictures are from our time at Acorn Acres, his farm. It was a perfect fall day to kick through leaves, tromp around the grounds, and just breathe deep and honor a great life.
So long, Mel.
