Grandpa I miss you more than words can describe. I wish you were still here painting with these paint brushes. I wish you were sitting down with our family telling us stories about World War II. I wish you could see what I’m doing with my art. I wish you could see that I never gave up…and that I will never give up. I wish you could stand in front of one of my murals. I wish I could watch you paint with your beautiful and perfect artists hands. I wish I could call you and tell you about the projects I’m working on. I wish I could share with you the community I now have. I wish I could sit next to you and have another drawing lesson. But most of all I wish you’re happy and I pray to see you again…one day soon.
^^A local newspaper took this pic highlighting his work in both education and in art galleries^^
^^One of my favorite paintings of his. He was a Scot through and through^^
Happy Birthday Grandpa…you were an incredible human being and a true artist.
