going out to clean the pasture spring...

My grandpa passed away early Monday morning, July 12th.
Please pray for my mom and my grandma as they grieve his loss.

Doug & I will be coming to New York this weekend for his funeral on Saturday at 11:00am.

You can read Poppy's obituary here and, if you haven't, about my last visit with him here.

I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I shan't be gone long. - - You come too.
I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I shan't be gone long. - - You come too.
-Robert Frost
