He was a gentle man and a gentleman too. Everybody lied him, He had been a black smith for years before my mom and dad invied him to live with us. He worked on the honey business as he could not just seit still. Butterflies would la nd on his shouders, and the squirrels ate out of his hands. He and my mom were my go to people as my dad was town doctor only one and too much older than my ml om. I always had the feeling he never really liked me he wanted a boy. But my grandpa did love me and was there for me always . He was sage and smart even though had never had more than an eight grade education,. He w as my mom's father and a really gentle kind msn who often steered me in the right ways while I was growing up.I had two pictures one of my so at 18 and one of my grandpa Richey at the same age. They looked so much alike it was scary.both were very handsome at tjhat age That was my grandpa now how about yours fellow my lotters. One original post and graphic by P Hatley copyrighted 2017

Pictures are funny that way. I was looking at family pictures a couple years ago and saw one of my grandmother that looked so much like my uncle. After looking at it for a while I realized it was in the jaw and cheekbones. Definitely related.

Such a great grandfather. My grandfather was very loving but very calm person most of the time. He used to like me very much as I am his son's only daughter and look more like my granny (his wife)
