Grandpa Barrett.....

It's hard to find the right words to express
everything i feel about my Grandpa and family.
My Grandpa was one of the most unique people i know.
If there was one thing Grandpa Barrett loved it was life.
He would drop anything at anytime to go sail on the ocean,
ski with his grandkids, snowmobile with his son and grandson,
boogie board with his granddaughter (me) and all her cheerleading
buddies, head to magic mountain and go on every single ride,
bbq by the beach, design and make jewlery, play instruments,
make stain glass windows, design cockpits for airplanes,
write the most creative letters and birthday cards to grandkids,
fish, sail on the ocean, sail on the ocean, oh and sail on the ocean.
Grandpa was the definition of a beach bum! He loved
everything about the beach and ocean and lived near or on the ocean
for years! The list goes on and on about the fun life Grandpa lived.

The older i get the more i realize that family is not perfect. Things happen and families change but one thing
doesn't and it is the memories and love that exist
and keep that family alive.
The one thing i took away from this memorial was
life is not perfect heartache is there but we can live each day
with happiness and create our own memories.
