The World Keeps Spinning

To my son Tommy,

When asked how he was your Great Grandpa Leo used to say, "The world keeps spinning, I just try to hold on." It used to tickle him thinking of this world as a big giant merry-go-round hurtling through space and that we needed to hold on tight, sometimes by a single blade of grass, or risk being thrown from the ride. He doesn't have to hold on anymore. He passed away tonight. God rest his soul. He was a great man by any standards. He loved us all very much and lived a very blessed life for just over ninety three years. He taught us all how to live and how to laugh. The world keeps spinning, now we are left to hold on the best we can, and with the memory and teachings and love of such a great man, hopefully we can hang on a little stronger.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
