Three Volleys

    It's been ten years. 
    Husband. Father. Grandfather. Great-grandfather. Officer. Soldier.
    Survived by five children, fifteen grandchildren, and (at the time), four great-grandchildren.  Preceded in death by his wife, one son, and (IIRC) two brothers.
    Fishing trips to Fort Leavenworth.
    Two trips to San Diego, one trip to Truman Lake.
    The lawn, the tree, the truck. 
    A place to watch KU on Big Monday, a lawn to mow for a nice price, and always a 24 pack of Diet Pepsi.  (If it's empty, it was mine.)
    I miss you, Grandpa.
