My Papa

My grandfather, Orville Lee. I miss him so much, he's been gone for almost 8 years now, but it only seems like days sometimes. He was the most influential man in my young life. Growing up without my Dad or other grandfather-I spent a lot of time with him. The way his hat is cocked to one side was how he was, and he wore his caps that way his whole life. A good man, with just a hint of an edge underneath the surface.

And since I was the only grandchild for 16 years, I got a lot of attention LOL. He taught me to fish, hunt, build, use power tools, all the useful stuff :) I miss you a lot Papa.
