My grandpa died today. It was sudden and unexpected and everyone is shocked and obviously very sad. We love you Sam.

Thanks Tamara,
I did a search for "Lermo family" and found your blog with Sam's photo. The picture is awesome. I stole it to use on my web page.
I miss your grandpa even though I have not been around much for the last couple decades. I have so many fond memories of Sam, Lillie and my cousins. Rick and I used to play together and he, along with Sam were my heroes.
Your jewelry is awesome. I will show your site to my daughter, Lindsay, so she can check out some of your vegan dishes.
Here it is, Christmas already. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Hi Ron. Thanks for leaving a comment. I'm glad to know you found the post and the photo. I don't know if you'll check back here or not to see my reply, but if you do, please email me (use contact page on this site) and I'd be happy to send you more pictures I took that day - it was earlier this year; July, I think. I also printed out your note to take to my grandma and Judy, who I'm having lunch with tomorrow.
