This is rich with characters and memories, and very enjoyable to read. I almost wish it were a novel so the people would have more space to breath and come alive. Nicely done.
I Love your opening line--it's so true. It seems to me that your grandparent's generation was very stoic, and I've often wondered how much wisdom died with them, but you're right, their very lives spoke.
I am glad that you are teaching your grandchildren valuable lessons now that maybe you missed out on as a child.

Thank you for giving us some insight into your family. :)
