1. I remember my grandfather as a gentle giant of sorts. He was enormous (look at those legs!), with a booming voice that was perfect for reading to me books about mice. All the best stories about his past involved horses, bears, or epic brawls on the streets of Eastern Utah. He also played drums in a band and had a penchant for satin shirts.
