Good-bye Grandpa Leitner (Wednesday, January 30, 2013)

This morning, my mother called me to let me know that my grandfather, Edward Leitner, has passed away. He was born in New York on July 27, 1911, and lived most of his life in Westbrook, Connecticut, where he will be buried sometime next week. At nearly 102, no one could say he didn't live a full life. I know the last couple of years haven't been much fun for him, with his mind as sharp as ever, but his body being less and less cooperative. In the end, at least he went quickly and quietly, rather than after years of convalescence. There are so many things that I wish I'd been able to learn from him. A vast range of knowledge and experience were lost today, and that is a sad thing.
