Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving (early)!

I am thankful for family. I got word this morning my grandpa passed away last night so I am flying out soon to be with my family. My grandpa was a wonderful man. He was a pilot in the Navy and went on to law school and career in tax law. He was the best grandpa I ever could have asked for. He was kind, thoughtful, caring, creative and most of all funny. He always knew just how to make us laugh. He called me his little pumpkin. He is in heaven now and I know he is smiling down on us all.

I am thankful this Thanksgiving to have had him in my life.

Have a happy Thanksgiving and enjoy being with those you love most!
