I sort of dropped off the face of the blogosphere last week. It wasnt just this blog though, I dropped off the face of all internet social interaction (twitter and foursquare included–gasp!). On Saturday night, PW and I were having a pizza date with Megan and Justin, when I got a panicked phone call from my mother. My grandfather–her dad–had a massive heart attack and this was it. They were waiting for me to drive to the hospital to say goodbye. Thankfully, we got there in time, and I was able to thank him for being an amazing grandpa and tell him I love him. Pep (short for Pepere) passed with all of his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren surrounding him. The services were Wednesday night and yesterday morning. He had a full military send off (he was a veteran of World War II, receiving many medals–including a Purple Heart!), including Taps. My father gave an amazing eulogy.
He was an avid hunter, fisherman, and cigar smoker 🙂
Here are a few pictures from Pep’s life:
This one is from July 4th…we had a cookout at his house. He definitely still had his sense of humor!
Rest in Peace, Pep
