1. There is no weekly link list this week. I want to leave up my tribute to my grandfather. I was honored and encouraged by the comments left yesterday, and though I realize that some people will already have read this memoir for my grandfather, perhaps there were some out there who did not. I wrote this piece not simply to reflect on my Grandpa, though, but also to prompt thought in my readers' minds about the legacy that they will leave behind. As Roy Ciampa so kindly noted, my grandfather's life touched many beyond his family. What a testimony, and what a challenge to those of us who still can shape the mark we will leave on this fading earth.
