I share a middle name with my grandfather: Cranmer. That was the name he was known by. He was the kindest person I ever knew. He rarely ever got angry, and was able to make a joke out of the worst circumstances. There is something rewarding about this gentler way of living. He has passed on, but he is still an influence on who I am. Even though I am young I hope I have some “grandpa” in my daily life.
