In Memory of Alvin Maddison Hanson
8 July 1915 - 10 January 2009
Just 13 days ago, we visited Grandpa. He played a game of chess with Kegan and hosted dinner. The above picture was taken then. The kids were getting a little goofy, but we really enjoyed visiting him. Before this last year, I have never lived in the same state as any of my grandparents. During 2008, we visited Grandpa several times during the year. He even played frisbee with us this summer.
Both of my grandmothers passed away at the end of 2007, so in just a short time, I went from having 3 living grandparents to none. I am grateful for the legacy they have left and love them dearly.
