Good Bye, Pawpaw.

My Pawpaw and me

My Pawpaw being a good sport at Christmastime, looking at some pics from a trip Dustin and I took.

My Pawpaw is the one who taught me to mix Coke with orange juice, and he even once convinced me to try jelly on my ice cream. He served in World War II where his gun backfired, causing him to lose most of his hearing. He was artistic and worked both as an art teacher and as a graphic designer for NASA. He designed some of the patches for the first manned rocket flights. Born in 1913, it is mind boggling to think of technological progress he saw in his life.

I love him and I will miss him.
