He was 92 when he died. Tall, huge feet, thick wavy hair, and smile lines deeper than dried mud. He left behind a legacy of 8 children and more grandkids and great kids than I care to count. He loved nothing more than to hear his family laugh. He adored polka music, baseball in his front yard and juicy fruit gum. He was my grandpa. He passed away on December 21, 2017.
His name was Richard Laverne Peterson.
This is in honor of him. I hope it brings comfort to those who grieve and a recognition of love to those who feel alone.
