Grandpa Mead


My grandpa passed away last night. Did you know that Brian actually asked my grandpa's permission first to marry me before asking my dad? Grandpa lived with my parents for 13 years after the passing of his wife Adine, and when Brian and I were still just dating, he often referred to Brian as my husband. Slightly embarrassed at what we now know was a prophetic slip of the tongue, I would tell my grandpa "We're not married yet - but you'll be the first to know."
And he was.
There are lots of things to say about this wonderful man, and I think my mom has done it perfectly.
Please read her blog post "For the Love of Lenny".
Grandpa we'll miss you. Please watch down on us in the next coming months so you can see your great-granddaughter. We'll make sure to tell her all about you.
