My Grandpa passed away this week. It didn't really hit me until last night when I was laying in bed. I am really sad I am not able to go to the funeral to celebrate his wonderful life. So I thought I would dedicate this blog post to him!
Grandpa Wilson lived in Independence, Missouri in a REALLY cool house. I loved visiting him when I was little because there was so much to look at and do! I remember as a youngster playing in his office because it smelled like his pipe that he smoked. I LOVED THAT SMELL even as a little person.(maybe that explains a lot about me? hehe) He always told me silly, crazy stories and I believed every word he said. He knew I was gullible and enjoyed pulling my leg. Every time we went to visit them they took us to the casino to eat a big lunch. As the parents would go into the casino to do a few slot machines us cousins had to wait patiently. Finally I turned 21. And what did I do? Oh I drove up to Independence Missouri and went to the casino with my grandpa! I had NO clue what I was doing, but I was more thrilled to be carded and enter into the casino FINALLY! Ya, I didn't win anything and it only took 30 min to blow $20. Oh well. It was fun because I was with my grandpa making a memory.
I love you grandpa. Someday we will meet again.
