William Warren Howard 09.03.1924-10.17.2009

He was argyle socks and plaid pants.  He was old golf clubs on the brick patio. 

He was fresh tomatoes out of the garden and humane traps for the squirrels just so he could kill them in the shed. 

He was scotch on the rocks at cocktail hour and apple juice on the rocks for me.

He was sleepovers on the screened porch and puss monsters in the elm tree that only liked little kids named Fettucini.

He was a ladder against that elm the next morning to show us the puss monster only hits when you’re supposed to be sleeping.

He was golf, golf and more golf.

He was history, and WWII, and geneology before the internet.

He was Dad to three, Grandpa to thirteen, and Grosspop to one.

He was so much more than I ever knew.

*Yes, I used his real name.  I know, I’m a little freaked out, too.



  1. You are in my prayers. I’m so sorry for your loss.

  2. That was beautiful.
