That was so very nice.What a blessing your grandfather was to you and what a blessing you were to him.
Thank you for sharing those wonderful pictures of your grandfather, his life, and your love for him. Our thoughts are with you and your family. May you all hold eachother close. Chris' mom
well, you've made me a little misty-eyed at work this morning. i don't think i ever had the pleasure of meeting him, but i always liked that we shared a birthday. we'll do a little extra celebrating for him this year.
A mighty fine looking character right from the start. He looks like a grandpa should, well turned out and kind. As he was a one time indie icon perhaps you might consider the 'Badly Drawn Boy' lyric, "to live in the hearts of those that you loved is not to die".Thoughts and peace.Bowles.
great, i'm crying at my desk right now.
Moving tribute dan, I am sure he would be honored. I just heard yesterday and I am sorry for your loss. Great use of blog space.Dor's son

I should have listend to Sujan and not read this till I got home tonight.I hope to live a life that will be as inspiritaional to my grandchildren as your grandfather was to you.Margie J
As we Quakers say, I have been holding you and your family in the light.Between the two of us, Wes and I have lost three grandparents in the last 18 months and it just...blows. There's really nothing more to be said.And I won't hold you accountable for my current weeping, since I have been pointing out that it is an incredibly frequent occurrence lately. But this was incredibly moving and a lovely tribute.
Dan,That was really, really touching... a beautiful tribute to a really special guy. I'm really sorry to hear of your loss. Best wishes,Jeff Simmermon
Daniel,Thanks so much for sharing the photos. I know they are treasured, and now we can view them when we want. I'd love to see more of them!-Eileen
A really nice tribute. My thoughts are with you and your family.
Thank you everybody for your condolences. He really meant a lot to so many people. It is only now really beginning to hit me that he is gone. Eileen, I wish I had more pictures. We should get together sometime and look through all the old pictures and old slides that my grandma has.
A very beautiful and loving remembrance. You and Amy were so fortunate to have had such a wonderful grandfather who enriched your lives. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.Rosemary
Daniel,Great photo essay. The reaction from your blogmates shows how beautifully Grandpa is communicated from your heart.Stephen
Dan,I don't feel I know you well enough to intrude too far into your private grief. I just want to say that this rememberance your put together is a beautiful thing.
Dan & family, I'm really sorry for your loss. - Michelle
Hi Dan...thank you for this. Makes the miles between us seem shorter. The pictures make me smile and weep at the same time. He is so missed already, but had such an impact that he will never be forgottenMiriam
