Grandpa Bennion

30 Mar

My Grandfather passed away in January. At the time I was dealing with so much emotion I could not find words to express how I felt. I came across these lines of poetry today, and I knew what they meant for me.

~~I have looked too long upon you, too long…
and with so much love that strangers can see you in my face–
as the sun and vivid colors leave and after-image in the eyes.
~Walter Benton

Grandpa left not only an impression in my face, but on my life, and I will never forget him.

    Now how many times does that make that I have just bawled today. That was great.
