Jane, I'm very sorry for your loss. I find your memories very touching, and wish I had thought to do something like that before mine passed away.

I'm very glad that you had the opportunity to talk to him so recently...


I am sorry about your loss - what a difficult year this has been for you so far with these losses so close together.

On a sidenote: Have you converted your Super 8 film to DVD yet? If not, do it soon. I just went through the proces of getting all ours done and learned that those films go bad after time.

Lovely memories!


Sorry about your grandpa. Tough to lose two grandparents so close together.

I love that you and your grandpa discussed grammar at Shoney's. I'm gonna guess that grammar is not a frequent topic of conversation at Shoney's.

This was the sweetest tribute. It's the small things that resonate. Thanks for sharing them.


That was lovely - what a nice tribute to your grandpa.

I am very, very sorry to hear about your loss. Let me know if I can do anything.

Jane; I love the memories you brought to life in your blog. I have very few memories of my grandparents because they lived in Indiana and I in California.

Kevboy; thanks for the reminder that I need to get my super 8's onto DVD... and soon.

Sorry, that would be cagey that reminded me about the DVD's!


So sorry for your loss. :(


Thank you all for your kind thoughts.

To answer the question about the Super 8 films, I did have them transferred to digital videotape about 8 years ago (before DVDs were quite so ubiquitous). My next goal is to get them transferred to DVD so I can edit them, add music, etc.


Jane, what a wonderful post about your grandfather. My heart is with you; and I truly do have a sense of how you must be feeling. I lost my husband 3 months ago, and just found out that my father-in-law passed away this evening. You'll be in my thoughts...


My deepest condolences. You Grandpa sounds like a very cool guy. This was a lovely tribute.


Super post Jane. Memories are wonderful things and you have some great ones to cherish. KP
