In loving memory of my dear grandfather, who passed away on Sunday, March 9, 2008 at the age of 99. I will miss him tremendously, but am so thankful to have known him and had him be such a big part of my life for 27 years.
P.S. Grandpa's life-long affection for the Cubs (and his opinion about changing the name of Wrigley field) was the focus of an article in the Chicago Sun-Times last Thursday (which included a photo of Grandpa on the front page!). You can read that article here, along with a follow-up obituary, which tells more about his life. (Note: the years my aunt is quoted as providing for when he stopped driving and moved into the nursing home are wrong...it should be 2004.)
