This is a picture of me as a baby with my Great-Grandpa Earnie. Grandpa was a tough, spunky old guy with patience that I have never seen anyone else possess. Grandpa taught me how to ride a lawn mower, how to shoot a gun, and how to cook weird animals. Grandpa lost his voicebox and had a talker, which I loved! It fascinated me! I loved spending time singing "You are my sunshine" with him, and when the whole family would get together and he would break out the instruments and the tape recorder. I wish Travis would have met Grandpa, because he would have loved him as much as I do! I miss Grandpa, but my memories of him will always be in my heart!
