Memory endures

Are you a fox or a hedgehog? A fox knows many things and a hedgehog knows one thing well.  My grandfather was a foxy hedgehog. Or maybe a hedgehoggy fox. He had a wide variety of hobbies and interest, and he did them all well. He was a photographer, a genealogist, a gardener, a collector of cameras and books and other items, a candy maker, a poet, and Santa Claus. He sang folk songs and told stories. He volunteered at his church and in his community, and loved and supported his family.

Forget hedgehog or a fox, he was a just great man.

How great a man? He grew cotton in his backyard in Odessa, Texas. That great.

Grandpa Woolf would have turned 83 today. I miss many days, but I miss him a lot today. My grandfather made candy every Christmas, from pecan pralines to Martha Washingtons, and of course fudge. So in honor of him, we made fudge.

My grandfather has been gone more than  six years now. Although my girls knew him, the boys didn’t have that opportunity. That’s one of the hardest things about missing him: that they won’t know what they’re missing. But I sing them the same songs, tell the same stories, and share the same faith so that they will learn about him now and recognize him on that forever day that we meet again.

Happy birthday, Grandpa. Thank you for the legacy of fudge and songs and love.
