Saying Goodbye…

My last remaining grandfather passed away in May while I was in Amsterdam. I didn’t come home early because there was no funeral or memorial at his request. This Thanksgiving weekend my aunt was in town and our family went up to A.Y. Jackson lookout, a place my grandfather liked. It was nice to be together for the day. No one said any grand speeches. Instead we drank some champagne and marvelled at nature and the place his picture was taken a few years ago.
