To my dad, thank you for being a wonderful father and support (and a loyal follower of this blog!). I love you. To my beloved brother, it’s a joy to see the love and pride you have for your son; thank you for bringing him into our lives! I love you, too.
I wish I had some digital pictures of my grandfathers, but I don’t. My maternal grandfather passed away several years ago, but I want to express my love and pride for him. I miss him, and I wish I’d known him better. My paternal grandfather is very close to my heart, and certainly an inspiration to my creativity. He’s a brilliant craftsman and woodcarver, and even in his mid 90’s is still very active and spends much of his time “helping the elderly people in the neighborhood” (who are a decade younger…). He doesn’t own a computer, but here’s my love letter anyway – Grandad, you’re knit into my heart and my bones, and I love you.
