forget me nots

great-grandfather died

My great-grandfather died Saturday. I didn't know him. I actually didn't
know I still had a great-grandfather.

Interesting things I saw in the obit (which is how I even knew he died).

My grandmother (the other one, my dad's mom) is one of 12 children (11 + 1
deceased).

There are 36 living grandchildren (plus 4 deceased) and 87
great-grandchildren (I'm one of those).

I only know 6 of the children. Two of them have the same name. I don't know
what that's about. I only know one of those.

I should call my dad.
