My grandfather passed away. It was a lovely service today at very beautiful Green-Wood Cemetery, Brooklyn, NY. Green-Wood Cemetary is a National Historic Landmark. I was taken by it’s beauty. My grandfather was very loved and leaves behind his lovely wife of 62 years, 6 children, 9 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren, all privileged to know…

  • Im so sorry for your loss. I hope you and your family are okay and comforting each other.

    Isn’t this a beautiful cemetary? Its right near my house so Im quite biased 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Oh, I am so terribly sorry for your loss. Your grandfather sounds like a wonderful gentleman and I am sure he is in a wonderful place.

    And yes, that cemetery is beautiful.ReplyCancel

  • Thank you so much for your kind words, they are greatly appreciated. I will hopefully get around to posting some old scanned images of my grandparents together that I’ve only recently seen – my grandmother’s wedding dress was stunning. I never saw a photograph of it until two days ago and now I’m anxious to put something together on the blog for them.

    I have many fond memories of him that I will hold dear. One of my favorites was that he used to take myself and my cousins sailing in the Hamptons on the Shinnecock Bay on a small sunfish that used to whip us around.

    Thanks again!

  • You didn’t pick a very flattering corner of Brooklyn. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Nope, definitely not, it just happened to be in the direction I was going!

    Optimo’s are definitely staples of Brooklyn, however.ReplyCancel

  • True – the bodegas are scattered around liberally. But they won’t be here that much longer in most areas as they are getting squeezed out by better supermarkets and local shops. Its one thing I will never miss about the “old Brooklyn”.ReplyCancel
