In Memory

Kenneth George Chick
October 31, 1921-January 25, 2004

Today is a bittersweet day. It would have been my beloved Granddad's 85th birthday. How I wish he were here to celebrate it.

I made this collage last night while waiting for a show to come on. It reminds me of Gramps who was incredibly gifted and creative. He was a skilled carpenter and cabinet maker. He could look at something and then hold it in his mind's eye till he could go draw up the plans and make it himself.

Happy birthday Gramps. I miss you terribly.
