1. Today it has been four years since we lost my Grandpa Ludy. I have been missing him more since Sammy was born. I would really have liked him to get to meet Sammy. My Grandpa Ludy taught me to love cows, goats, and tromping around in pastures. I still get a hitch in my heart whenever I see an old man wearing his usual uniform of old, beat-up overalls. Grandpa Ludy, I hope you can look down from heaven and see your great-grandkid. I promise to teach him to love goats too. I miss you.
