Well, it seems as though my last post came at an appropriate time. My grandfather passed away early yesterday morning. Although it is a sad occasion, he had been ill for long time and had worsened over the past week, so there is some comfort in knowing that he won't suffer anymore. He's the only grandfather I ever knew, and I was lucky to have him in my life for as long as I did.
Since my grandfather was always a big fan of the "Irish sports pages," here's a link to his obituary.
